MQ: Transforming Mental Health through research


About us

MQ: Transforming Mental Health is a new charity formed to support much-needed research into mental health. Mental illness affects us all. 1 in 4 of us will experience a mental disorder at some point in our lives. The medical, social and economic costs of mental illness are huge. We need research that will give us better diagnostic, treatment and prevention tools to address this problem. 

We know that investment in mental health research will improve the quality of life for all. MQ will harness the power of a community of researchers, doctors, service users, families, advocates and funders to tackle mental illness. By identifying and funding the best scientists conducting pioneering research we can achieve our goals. 

Our vision is to create, with your help, a world where: 

• Mental health is as respected as physical health, and mental illness is understood, diagnosed and treated like any other disorder 

• World-class research into improving the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of mental illness is a global priority 

• Patients and families know the best science is being applied to improving their quality of life 

MQ: Transforming Mental Health is committed to supporting research across all the sciences, from basic bench research to clinical studies to the social sciences. We will work together with other organisations to work across disciplinary boundaries and ensure that your money goes towards the very best research. 

The need for investment in science has never been greater. Mental illness takes lives. With your help, we can give them back.
