We already know a lot about IQ. We are learning ever more about the value of emotional intelligence or EQ. But our knowledge of Mental Health is way behind where it needs to be, and without research it s just guesswork. We desperately need to improve our MQ! Through research into Mental Health, we can develop better treatments and preventions so that everyone can have a healthy MQ.
We champion and fund world-class research to transform the lives of everyone affected by a mental health condition. We strive to create a world where mental illness is better understood, diagnosed, treated and, maybe someday, prevented. Research is the first step towards making that a reality.
