New Mental Health Research Fund
It is estimated that every year one in four adults in the UK will experience a mental health problem, yet mental health research receives less than 6.5% of the total health research spending. We are developing further our long-standing commitment to mental health research with the recently launched Helen Lester Appeal. The Appeal, dedicated to the former Chair of CIRC Dr Helen Lester, aims to raise £200,000 to support researchers to undertake valuable and much needed research into mental health issues in primary care. The Lester Fund will support Research Fellowships and research grants, and our Scientific Foundation Board will select research which strives to improve the lives of those living with mental health problems across the UK. By donating today to the Helen Lester Appeal you will be working with us to improve the care given to millions of vulnerable patients across the UK.
