Many of us will experience obsessive thoughts and compulsive behaviours during our lifetime. For most of us, these feelings are short-lived and don’t interfere with our normal routine. But what happens when they start to disrupt your life, your mood and even your physical health?
We explore why patient data is vital if we want to truly transform mental health for everyone.
In this blog for Mental Health Awareness Week, we explore the science of stress and mental health. We look at how research is transforming what we know, providing hope for new treatments as well as showing effective ways to cope with stress in our everyday lives.
We announce the two winning projects of the Service User and Carer Involvement Awards 2018.
At MQ, we believe in funding the research that can deliver the biggest impact for those facing mental illness. But how do we measure this? Here are five principles we use to demonstrate impact.
Around one in five people worldwide will experience severe depression in their lifetime - yet our knowledge of what causes it remains incredibly limited. But new research could provide hope for the development of more effective, personalised care for those affected.
Research suggests that when a person is victimised – either through maltreatment, bullying or being a victim of crime – they are more likely to think about suicide, self-harm and attempt to end their life. But is this because of the victimisation itself? Or are there other factors at play? We take a look at researcher Jessie Baldwin's work, which hopes to find out.
How could better understanding what's going on the body help to develop new treatments for mental illness?
