Deutsche Bank and MQ: transforming the future of mental health

  • 1 in 4 of usaffected each year
  • Up to 10 yearsto get a diagnosis
  • Just £9 per personspent on mental health research

Have you ever stopped to think how little we really know about mental illness? 

Sure, more people are talking about mental mental health. Awareness is growing. But our understanding remains so limited. Diagnosis takes years. Treatments fail.

As the UK's leading mental health research charity, we won’t accept this status quo. And we know you won’t either. Research has transformed cancer treatments. It's stopped HIV devastating lives. It can do the same for mental health.

Vote for MQ and invest in the future of mental health.
