Improving mental health in mid-life
Mental wellbeing underpins good health and impacts everyone. It is estimated that one in four people will experience a mental health problem each year, yet many will receive no treatment at all.
For some mid-life can be a time of increased responsibilities, challenges and pressures, in their working lives, family lives and relationships. The prevalence of mental illness peaks among people in their middle years.
Within this funding programme the Bupa UK Foundation is looking to fund practical, community-focused projects that will support and improve people’s mental health at this critical life-stage.
