MQ: Mental Health Research is the UK’s leading mental health research charity. They fund scientific research into all mental health conditions to help change the face of mental health for generations to come.
Right now, our understanding of mental illness is nowhere near where it needs to be.
• One in four of us experience a mental illness each year
• It can take an average of ten years to get help after symptoms first develop
• Many treatments and interventions are ineffective, their side-effects can be exhausting and there is often a painful period of trail-and-error to reach a solution
MQ won’t accept this status quo.
Through research we can inspire the next great shift in healthcare. Think of the speed with which research brought us the COVID-19 vaccines, evidence of the impact research can have if given adequate resources and funding. Think of the huge advances made through research in areas like HIV and cancer. Treatments for these and many other diseases are unrecognisable compared to 30 years ago. MQ is committed to inspiring an equivalent transformation in our response to mental illness.
COVID-19 has shone a light on another pandemic: mental illness. One which has been underfunded for decades. Now, more than ever, research provides hope for the future.
With your help, MQ will create a world where mental illness is understood, effectively treated and one day prevented.
30% of net sales from this product range will be donated to MQ: Mental Health Research to support their work in better understanding, treating and one day preventing mental illness.
