EMBER: Call for Innovations!


Ember is calling for applications from community-based mental health projects working in low- and middle-income countries. Successful applicants will be enrolled in a 12-month process designed to support, strengthen or grow the project, as appropriate.




To be successful in this process, applicants must:
  • Work in the field of mental health. We are particularly interested in organisations that are attempting to: fill a gap in services or care; raise awareness of or deepen understanding around
  • mental health; develop local, innovative solutions to specific challenges in mental health.
  • Work in a low- or middle- income country.
  • Engage directly with communities. We are unlikely to partner with advocacy organisations, political organisations, government services or think-tanks.
  • Not discriminate on the basis of religion, gender, sexuality, ethnicity, race or ability. However, faith-based organisations may apply.
  • Have a team of more than one person. This can include volunteers.
All applications need to be in by the 17th September 5pm GMT
