A Universal Basic Income (UBI) consists of cash payments, made periodically, to an individual, universal and unconditional basis. At the RSA – in a partnership led by Matthew Johnson at Northumbria University – we’ve been exploring the role a UBI might play in improving health and wellbeing outcomes. Today we’re celebrating the launch of that research; Challenging the mental health crisis: How Universal Basic Income can address youth anxiety and depression.
