Our research

M-RIC’s programme of work focuses on developing better treatments and tackling inequalities in mental healthcare.

Our research aims to:

  • improve mental healthcare through new discovery science, clinical trials, service improvements and new technologies
  • using data and health technology to improve access, treatment and monitoring for mental healthcare
  • improving treatment for people with mood disorders
  • use new apps, technology, and parent support services to help identify early mental health problems in children and young people
  • find new uses for existing medicines that might provide new ways to treat psychosis
  • use data and insights from across the NHS, social care, education, workplaces and more to better understand and treat mental health conditions.
