This briefing provides an analysis across the UK of government support for mental health research, with a particular emphasis on the UK Department of Health. This analysis builds on data collected for the project — Mapping the global mental health research system — which aimed to map the global funding of mental health research between 2009 and 2014, using bibliometric data to develop a picture of who the major funders were, what kinds of research they supported and how their strategies related to one another.
