MQ: Transforming Mental Health

Mental illness is an epidemic which is chronically underfunded. 1 in 4 people are affected by a mental illness each year, and yet only 5.8% of all health research funding in the UK is spent on mental health.

That is why our founder, David Roach, is a Development Partner at MQ: Transforming Mental Health; a research charity which exists to create a world where mental illness is understood, effectively treated, and ultimately prevented.

David Roach Consulting has teamed up with MQ to raise money and awareness of the important work they do to improve the lives of people with mental health issues.

MQ’s energy, commitment and intellect are going to change the world, and if you want to be part of that, then click here to view their website.

Alternatively, if you want to attend one of David’s fundraising events for MQ, then please get in touch with David Roach Consulting at info@davidroach.co.uk and we’ll add you to our guest list.
