Daisy will join other networks designed to broaden mental health research, and will each receive £1.25 million over four years from across the research councils.

UKRI's new funding scheme aims to bring researchers, charities and other organisations together to address important mental health research questions. The networks cover a diverse range of topics, such as exploring the impact of loneliness and social isolation on mental health, improving the life expectancy of people with severe mental ill health and promoting young people's mental health in a digital world.
