Change Mental Health has a commitment to delivering research across different areas of mental health to explore ways in which we can create a discussion on how we can better support people with conditions and in different environments.

We work closely with different organisations to collaborate and complete research. A lot of our research below has been conducted when we were Support in Mind Scotland and particularly during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Have a look at the different bits of research below we have independently pulled together or contributed towards.
