Understanding the brain in health and disease has never been more important as one in four adults, and around one in ten children, in the UK will experience some form of mental health problem. The cost to the UK economy is estimated at over £115bn annually.

Through the invaluable contributions of our supporters, our researchers can further our understanding of these conditions, improve diagnosis techniques, and develop pioneering new treatments for a range of devastating neurological conditions. This crucial support for cutting-edge research ensures new therapies are translated from the laboratory bench to the hospital bedside.
