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.

It's December! We're finally coming to the end of a very challenging year! And so we're asking all of you to accept OUR challenge! We're fundraising for a new PhD scholarship focusing on the trauma that has arisen from COVID-19. We're asking YOU to do a challenge to raise money from your family and friends - however big or small! Check out some examples of simple challenges which you could do to help us meet our target here: http://www.mentalhealthresearchuk.org.uk/mental-health-research-uk-campaigns-1/covid-19

Whatever you do, please tag us on your insta, facebook and twitter posts. And thank you for helping us to make a long-term difference.

Ecclesiastical have launched their 12 days of giving.

Designed to give eligible charities in the UK, Republic of Ireland, Channel Islands and Isle of Man the financial assistance they need to help them make a real difference, they are donating £1,000 to 10 charities each weekday from 7 – 22 December. That’s £120,000 to 120 charities over 12 days. 

All you need to do is click ‘nominate us’ above and 'nominate a charity now' and complete the form

Each draw will close at midnight the day before, with all nominations rolled over to the next available draw unless the charity is drawn. 

The more nominations Mental Health Research UK gets, the greater its chance of receiving a £1,000 donation, so start spreading the word to your friends and family.
