Mental Health Mission for mental health research – who is involved?

Birmingham Health Partners (BHP) members,  the University of Birmingham, Birmingham Women’s and Children’s NHS Foundation Trust and Birmingham & Solihull Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust, alongside Oxford Health Biomedical Research Centre (OH BRC) and other partners  are part of the Government’s new Mental Health Mission – designed to develop radical new treatments for mental health conditions.

The Mission will be delivered through the National Institute for Health and Care Research (NIHR) Mental Health Translational Research Collaboration, a UK wide network of leading investigators specialising in mental health research.

In Birmingham, £9.9 million in funding will enable the establishment of the Mental Health Mission Midlands Translational Centre where Research will focus on increasing recruitment to new studies to test and validate treatments in early psychosis, depression and children and young people.
