About research at the Mental Health Foundation

We are passionate about the transformative power of research to create change in people’s lives, their communities and workplaces, in services and policy.

We aim to contribute to the mental health evidence base by:

  • undertaking original research
  • synthesising existing knowledge 
  • translating this research to further understanding of what works, transferring interventions to other populations and places at a scale that maximises benefit and impact, and including mental health in all policies. 

Our research covers work in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. We have offices in London, Cardiff, Edinburgh and Glasgow and conduct a variety of evaluations and research in these areas. 

The Mental Health Foundation researchers share extensive experience and relevant academic qualifications in mental health research.
