Mental Health Team

We're helping to create a world where no one is held back by mental health problems. 

Anxiety, Depression and Psychosis can become lifelong, debilitating conditions that hold people back from achieving their life goals and contributing to society. 

Mental Health at Wellcome aims to lead a step change in early intervention for anxiety, depression and psychosis.

To do this involves considering how the brain, body and environment interact in mental health problems; understanding how interventions work and enabling connections and shared metrics across the full breadth of the Mental Health science community, including drawing on the expertise of those with lived experience of mental health problems.

We do this by bringing together expertise across science, innovation and society.
