The Money and Mental Health Policy Institute are always looking to collaborate with experts working within the mental health, finance, retail, political and related sectors. If you’d be interested in connecting with the Professional Network head here.
If you have had first hand experience of, or are caring for someone with a mental health problem, you may be interested in joining the MMHPI research community. Members are invited to take part in short surveys and questionnaires, and encouraged to share their personal experiences with us, to help inform our work and shape our research. It’s a great way for people with real life experience of mental health problems to have their say and get their voice heard.
