The opportunity

We’re leading the way in understanding how human societies are plagued by “brain challenges”, from mental health disorders and dementia to learning disabilities, the impact of so-called “long COVID”, and disparities in access to education and healthcare.

Brain Capital is a new economic approach and driver of innovation to tackle these challenges in a coordinated way. It will transform how we build and grow healthy local, national, and global economies.

We aim to secure additional partnerships to continue ground-breaking work that can have a greater impact on more people’s quality of life.

Brain Capital is integral to a new narrative of progress which puts people at the center of our economic system – their well-being and their psychological recovery from shocks.”
