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.
We wanted to find out how the generation of people currently aged 55 to 65 can protect their mental health and wellbeing as they get older.
Dementia and Truth-telling
We are supporting a major new inquiry into our understanding of some of the most challenging and distressing symptoms of dementia.

We are co-ordinating the formation, facilitation and evaluation of three self-help, peer-support groups for people with dementia (or suspected dementia) in extra care and sheltered housing schemes across London.
Self-help and peer-support groups for older people who are lonely and socially isolated.
