We work to develop evidence-based mental health policies to help to create a society in which everyone can enjoy good mental health.
We advocate for a preventative approach to mental health problems, so our policy development takes a cross-government approach, targeting the root causes of mental ill-health. Our Policy and Public Affairs team works closely with our Research and Programmes teams, taking forward what we learn from these areas. Contact us directly at [email protected] for more information.
