Goodbye to the MARCH network

In November 2021, we said goodbye to the MARCH network. MARCH network helped to transform our understanding of how cultural and community assets, such as heritage projects, the arts, parks and museums can influence mental health.

We spoke to Dr Daisy Fancourt about her highlights of the network, and her hopes for the future of mental health.
