The objective of the charity is to facilitate and enhance research into Mood Disorders by researchers based in the North of England. Funding to teams of researchers can include individuals with other affiliations. The research can be of any nature as long as it meets the vision and values of the Charity.
Funds from the charity will be awarded annually on a competitive basis with external peer review. Out of the Blues will hold an annual meeting, open to the public, at which its accounts will be made available to interested parties.
