Understanding What Works

Supporting research into the prevention of mental illness amongst young people and the effectiveness of early interventions.

We fund research to advance the understanding of depression and anxiety in children and young people, and of what works in the areas of prevention and early intervention. We would like our funding to make a real-life difference to young people with mental health conditions and so we favour projects that have a realistic pathway from research to implementation.

We believe that a larger community of talented researchers is needed to achieve our aim of advancing mental health research, so we are also supporting individuals who have the potential to do transformational work by offering them an early-mid career research fellowship that will help them build their research portfolio and leadership skills.

Our research grants and fellowships are delivered in partnership with UK universities that have a strong commitment to improving the mental health of children and young people. We are currently working with the following universities:
