Mental health charity goes live despite HBOS controversy

The mental health research charity MQ has launched its first call for proposals, having decided to stand by its co-founder, Dennis Stevenson, former chairman of the bank HBOS.

The call, issued on 12 April, offers fellowships worth £75,000 a year to early-career researchers and clinicians. Cynthia Joyce, the charity’s chief executive, says the fellowships are intended to keep young investigators working in mental health research.

It comes after a report, published by the Parliamentary Commission on Banking Standards on 5 April, criticised Stevenson for his role in the bank’s failure.
