Resource: Launch of MARCH network to explore how social, cultural and community assets can enhance public mental health and wellbeing

UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) have announced £8-million-worth of funding to bring researchers, charities and other organisations together to address important mental health research questions. One of the grants – for £1.25m – has been awarded to Dr Daisy Fancourt at UCL. Her network, MARCH, will explore how social, cultural and community assets (including the arts, heritage sites, libraries, parks, allotments, volunteer associations and community groups) can enhance public mental health and wellbeing, prevent mental illness and support those living with mental health conditions.
