New mental health research framework announced

  Created on Monday, 11 Dec 2017. Posted in Mental Health

Transforming mental health research over the next ten years to improve the care people receive is the focus of new recommendations published by the Department of Health. The NIHR, alongside Medical Research Council, the Wellcome Trust, the Economic and Social Research Council, MQ and the Alliance of Mental Health Research have funded the Framework for Mental Health Research, which sets out 10 recommendations to improve the impact of mental health research over the next decade. The framework - developed in collaboration with academics, clinicians, charities and people with mental health problems - has been published in response to a recommendation in the Five Year Forward View for Mental Health in 2016; representatives of the main funders will meet this month to discuss the recommendations.
