A new paper published today in Lancet Psychiatry highlights an urgent need to tackle the harmful impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on mental health.
A key part of MQ’s mission is to cultivate a research community dedicated to tackling the big challenges in mental health. One way we do that is through our Fellows Awards, funding talented scientists to become the next generation of research leaders.
MQ and the Academy of Medical Sciences have rapidly convened an expert group to develop mental health and neuroscience research priorities to COVID-19.
There is growing recognition that the mental health impacts of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic will be significant for us all – for those with existing mental health conditions and for everyone affected by stress, anxiety, isolation, loneliness, family pressure and financial hardship.
In new research, MQ Fellow Dr Ethel Nakimuli-Mpungu has successfully trialled an innovative way to increase access to effective mental health care in Sub-Saharan Africa.
A report published today shows that in 2018 mental health research received 6.1% of the overall UK health research budget - an increase of 0.51% since 2014.
An MQ funded study published today has successfully developed a predictive tool that could help recognise young people who are at high or low risk of depression in young adulthood.
This year we're launching a funding call for our Fellows Award - supporting researchers to explore new and better ways to understand, treat and prevent mental illness.
