Centre for Mental Health

We dedicated to eradicating mental health inequalities by changing policy and practice. We exist because people still don’t receive the mental health support they need, so we drive change and create the conditions for better mental health for all. To do this, we work side by side with people, and decision makers using economic analysis, research, and policy influence.

This ‘triple barrier’ of mental health inequality affects large numbers of people from different sections of the population.

As part of our work in the Commission for Equality in Mental Health, we've put together some of the key statistics about mental health inequalities.
