2009: Mental Health Research UK
Mental Health Research UK is dedicated to raising funds for research into the causes of mental illnesses in order to develop more effective treatments with fewer side-effects. Together with the Maudsley Charity, the McPin Foundation provided grant funding for a scoping project exploring how to increase funding for mental health research. Compared to other health areas, mental health does not receive high levels of investment for research into prevention strategies, treatment, management or understanding mental illness from onset through to impact. This grant reflected our ongoing commitment to the growth of mental health research across the sector.
