Data & research
We use anonymised, aggregated data to generate unique insights into the mental health of the UK population. We use these insights to enhance our services and report on trends of interest for the broader mental health sector.
Our work to harness data insights and digital innovation to provide new technologies and mental health support to people across the UK is underpinned by our team of in house clinical experts.
We are the charity behind Shout 85258, the UK's first free, 24/7, confidential text support service for anyone who is struggling to cope.
We work in partnership with Government and other public sector bodies, the corporate sector, academic institutions and the third sector to improve mental health in the UK.
