The Mental Health Research for Innovation Centre (M-RIC) has launched a new dedicated website -

The website details the pioneering mental health research that is being undertaken in Liverpool which will have a direct impact on local NHS care and treatments.

M-RIC is a partnership between Mersey Care NHS Foundation Trust and the University of Liverpool. Earlier this year, the organisations received £10.5 million from the National Institute for Health and Care Research and the Office for Life Sciences to create M-RIC as part of the UK Government’s ‘Mental Health Mission’.

M-RIC aims to improve mental healthcare by bringing together service users, academic researchers, NHS healthcare providers and industry partners to trial new treatments and deliver more innovative services.
