Centre for Mental Health seeks a fairer chance in life for people facing or living with mental ill health. We find ways of improving people's life chances and breaking down barriers by putting high quality research into policy and practice.
We've changed many lives in our 30 years of research and there's still more to do. Help us by submitting your birthday wish for mental health and donate if you can.
