Welcome to Mental Health Research UK

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.
