Mental Health Research UK at a glance 2020/21
Highlights of the year
This year was marked by the COVID-19 pandemic. Many of the events our supporters take part in were cancelled yet our income exceeded our expectations, mainly through a legacy, but more importantly through the efforts of our fundraisers, whom we greatly appreciate.
Overall, thanks to your generosity and major donors we raised over £348,000 this year, a brilliant result in a very difficult year.
We awarded four new PhD Scholarships to start in 2021 as follows:
Eating Disorders in Young People, PhD Scholarship - University College London.

Fieldrose Charitable Trust PhD Scholarship 2021 (Schizophrenia Research) - Cardiff University.
