The Global Mental Health funding call is one of Medical Research Council’s (MRC) initiatives under the Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF). The purpose of the call is to address the growing global burden of mental health problems and will support programmatic awards in global mental health with a focus on the aetiology and epidemiology of mental health and illness relevant to low and middle income countries (LMIC). The call encourages a life course approach with a particular focus on childhood and adolescence. Awards will support multidisciplinary approaches, build and strengthen UK-LMIC partnerships, and support research training and capacity building in global mental health research.
MRC will make up to £15 million available for this call and expects to support approximately five awards. Awards in this call will be made for a duration of up to five years.
