Geographical remit: 


Our vision is simple: to create a world where mental illness is understood, effectively treated, and ultimately prevented. 1 in 4 of us experience a mental health condition each year but treatments are only 50% effective across all conditions.

With the help of our supporters and a global network of leading scientists we can make this a reality. Together we are championing and funding research into mental health that will change millions of lives. 


Improve understanding

By gaining more knowledge about how and why mental health conditions occur, we can speed up diagnosis, improve the search for better treatments, and find ways to prevent mental illness developing.

Improve current treatments

We believe everyone should have access to a mental health treatment that works for them. That’s why we’re working to get more people the right treatment, faster. 

Prevent mental illness

Some 75% of mental health conditions start before the age of 18, and can have lifelong impacts. Through research we can understand who is most at risk, and find ways to provide better treatments earlier - with the potential to transform lives.
