Mental health research
Mental health is one of the most challenging public health issues of our time, with approximately one in four people in the UK experiencing a mental health problem each year. Mental health research is a key focus area for Elizabeth Blackwell Institute, see sections below for information on the projects we currently support.
Young people and students
There is increasing concern about mental health challenges facing young people. We are funding various projects looking at ways to improve mental health and wellbing for young people with a particular focus on students.
COVID-19 and mental health
We are funding a number of projects looking into the different ways the COVID-19 pandemic is affecting people's mental health.
Human trafficking, modern slavery and mental health
Led by Michelle Farr, this project looks at mobile technology for survivors of modern slavery and human trafficking and its impacts on mental health and wellbeing. This project has been joint funded by the Rosetrees Trust. We'll be sharing findings as the research progresses.
