Welcome to Mental Health Research UK

Please join us for our depression awareness campaign, 
Wear your brightest clothes to start conversations about mental health and raise awareness of depression and seasonal affective disorder.

Mental Health Research UK was established in 2008 as the UK's first charity dedicated to funding research into mental illness in order to develop better treatments with fewer side-effects. The Trustees continue to work with passion for the charity pro bono whilst in full time jobs. 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.

Stay in Touch:
Stay in touch by signing up to our e-newsletter and other relevant information. We will never give your email address to anyone.
We are always interested in people who want to challenge themselves and raise money for mental health research in the process, see our fundraising pages.
