Mental Health Initiative

The Wolfson Mental Health Research Initiative was launched in autumn 2018, with the aim of awarding up to £10m to research into mental health conditions. We hope to support a centre of excellence which will make significant progress in understanding the causes and improving the treatment of conditions such as anxiety and depression, with a particular focus on young people.

Over 25 organisations submitted a first stage application under this Initiative, and five were shortlisted. The shortlisted applicants will present their detailed plans to an international panel of experts in September 2019, and we expect to announce the successful bid shortly afterwards.

For more information about the background to this Initiative, please see the press release (PDF).
