£10m Mental Health Initiative

£10m Mental Health Initiative

We have launched a £10 million funding programme to support outstanding research to advance the understanding and treatment of mental health conditions.  UK universities and research organisations are eligible to apply (individually or collectively) and it is likely that a single award will be made.

We are convening a panel of leading international experts in mental health to review proposals.  Applications can request funding for:

  • Endowment of chairs or posts, and programme costs for up to 5 years
  • Attracting key talent in the field to work in the UK
  • Training early career clinical researchers
  • New research facilities or equipment

Research should focus broadly on anxiety and depression, and particular interest will be shown in proposals relating to adolescent mental health as well as those drawing on insights from other areas of medicine.

Institutions wishing to apply to the Wolfson Foundation should read Stage 1 Application Guidelines, the list of Frequently Asked Questions and send an outline description of the proposal to Mark Davies, Grants Programme Manager (Science & Medicine) at Mark.Davies@wolfson.org.uk by Friday 11 January 2019.

For further information on why we have launched this important initiative, please see the press release.
