These networks will embrace a collaborative ethos, bringing together researchers from a wide range of disciplines, including health, medicine, biology, social sciences, humanities and environmental sciences.

TRIUMPH is a collaboration between Cardiff University, Glasgow School of Art, the Mental Health Foundation, London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, University of Edinburgh, University of Glasgow and Queen’s University of Belfast.

This network will focus on young people and bring them together with academics from across all disciplines to find solutions to prevent and reduce mental health problems.
