Research funding

Our priorities

'We call on the next Welsh Government to ensure parity between Physical and Mental Health Services.'

We would like:

  • NHS Wales to at least match England for per capita NHS mental health and learning disability research spend;
  • To work with Health and Care Research Wales to ensure ongoing significant representation of mental health and learning disabilities in their strategic planning



The College has also identified a number of projects and ideas that we would like the Welsh Government to consider in the context of mental health, as well as including here some recommendations as to how the Welsh Government could apply them.
