a year in review - composite image of various people highlighted in the news story

This year marked the launch of our research themes (2022-27) campaign, and a number of projects to showcase and enable research taking place throughout our host organisations, such as a photography exhibition in the Maudsley Hospital and the launch of an NIHR Research Support Service at King's College London.

We made the headlines - from the news that 1 in 5 of us experience misophonia, to the links between mental illness and shorter life spans. Our blog explored topical issues, looking at how we can develop an ethical AI for healthcare, and the impact of the welfare system on mental health, among other subjects.
