About the Alliance

We are a group of charities and foundations that support mental health research. We meet regularly to share progress and generate new ideas for improving mental health research in the UK. We believe that more and better research is urgently needed to find ways of promoting good mental health, treating mental health problems, and supporting the wellbeing of individuals, families and communities. Research can help people with mental health problems, and those around them such as family members or friends, practitioners and leaders of organisations, to find solutions so individuals can enjoy better health and longer, more fulfilling lives.
