MQ: Transforming Mental Health

MQ is the first major charity exclusively funding scientific research into mental health. Our vision is simple: to create a world where mental illnesses are understood, effectively treated, and ultimately prevented. Since 2013, we have awarded over £9.7 million to mental health projects across the different scientific disciplines and covering multiple conditions. Find out more at
