Weʼre raising £3,000 to Conduct research to address the global challenges of addiction and mental health
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

Substance use and mental health disorders are major contributors to the global burden of disease, and their negative impact on human health is rising. In order to address these pressing issues, we need to understand the causes of these problems, their complex interplay, and how to help people affected by them. The Addiction and Mental Health Group (AIM) conducts research into addiction and mental health using state-of-the-art experimental, epidemiological and clinical methods. By triangulating information across these interdisciplinary research themes, we seek evidence that is both robust and relevant for people and society.
We are a group of academic researchers and NHS clinicians (Dr Sally Adams , Dr Emma Griffith , Dr Gemma Taylor and Dr Tom Freeman). We have recently launched our new research group in the Department of Psychology at The University of Bath. In order to achieve our aims we need funding to initiate our research programme, engage with service providers and service users affected by addiction and mental health problems and invite leading experts in the field to visit our group and give talks. In order to kick start this process Gemma and Tom are running the Bath half marathon. We would really appreciate any donations to help support our work.
