Welcome to Mental Health Research UK
Unlike many charities, since it was registered as a charity in 2008 Mental Health Research UK has given at least 95% of all donations received to research. The Trustees continue to work with passion for the charity pro bono whilst in full time jobs. Mental Health Research UK has increased its funding of research to such an extent that part-time administrative help will soon be necessary. However, even when that occurs, Mental Health Research UK pledges to give no less than 95% of all donations received to research, and to monitor its overheads and expenses very closely and with transparency, recognising that this is extremely important to donors.
With this pledge, you can be sure that if you support us, your kind donations will be spent on our core aims to help make a difference in the long-term.

Your answers will be saved, however, as long as you do not close your browser.The direct link to the survey is: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/5M3DJDP

The King's Fund: Increasing access to mental health care; One-day conference 8th Sept
The context: Increasing access to mental health care is a key issue in valuing mental health equally with physical health, or creating 'parity of esteem'. The recent introduction of access and waiting time standards are part of a five-year plan to ensure that mental and physical health services are integrated and given equal priority by 2020.
