Charity number


The McPin Foundation exists to transform mental health research by putting the lived experience of people affected by mental health problems at the heart of research methods and the research agenda. We are a small family foundation with big ambitions, registered charity number 1117336.

Help us make a difference by supporting our work that addresses an issue that affects us all. 1 in 4 people experience mental health problems in their lifetime. We put people with mental health problems and families at the heart of research to ensure its focused on matters that really matter to people. Our work helps support people with mental health problems back into work. We help tackle the stigma of mental illness - so people are less afraid to seek help because of what others will say about them or how they will behave towards them. We evaluate the impact of new ideas and solutions to help keep people well - we need better treatments and support for mental health.

Join us on our journey to transform mental health research. Help us fundraise so we can commission mental health research studies to progress user-focussed methodologies. Ensure we can fund the involvement of peer researchers in our research work. Make a difference by supporting us to grow as a charity so we can train, support, mentor and collaborate widely to develop user focussed mental health research across England.

We are enormously grateful for all the support we receive.  Thank you.
