Psychological impact programme makes first awards

The mental health research charity MQ: Transforming Mental Health has allocated £1.5 million to four teams of researchers in the first investment of its flagship research programme PsyIMPACT.

The research awards are for the investigation of more effective and accessible psychological treatments for common mental disorders such as anxiety, depression and ADHD.

Teams at King’s College London, the University of Oxford, the University of Pennsylvania, and Birkbeck, University of London, have been awarded funding. Their projects investigate: how to treat “worry and rumination”; preventative intervention of ADHD; how the internet might help tackle social anxiety symptoms; and an analytical tool for the prediction of which psychological treatment will be most effective for a patient, respectively.
