Our projects and research aims to change our understanding of mental health problems and improve the short and long term future of the nation's mental wellbeing.
We work across the full interconnected spectrum of severe mental illness, public mental health, happiness and wellbeing. Our research doesn't sit on dusty bookshelves - it's out there supporting practical solutions and changing minds.
