Benefits 

The Global Mental Health Program has launched proof-of-concept grants up to $250,000 for innovations that focus on the mental well-being of youth in low- and middle-income countries. The Program is seeking new ideas that have the potential to transform mental health services available for youth in low-resource settings.

The program will also be extending invitations to innovators that have an already established proof-of-concept to scale-up their mental health innovations through our Transition-to-Scale program.

Eligibilities

Global Mental Health Program is open to candidates from low- and middle-income countries but however, applicants from the United Kingdom or Canada implementing in the countries listed in Appendix A are also eligible to apply.

 

Entry

Grand Challenges Canada seeks bold ideas to meet the mental health needs of the most vulnerable 10 to 24-year olds. Organizers want culturally sensitive, community-driven, innovative approaches to enhance mental health literacy and/or provide youth-friendly services that account for the complex social and environmental factors contributing to young people’s mental health and wellbeing.
Innovations must be bold, innovative, transformational, accessible to the most vulnerable young people, and have the potential to be sustainable at scale. Innovations should seek to do one or more of the following:

  • Support community environments that promote mental wellbeing throughout adolescence.
  • Creatively approach mental health literacy and psychosocial education, working to embed mental health understanding in the broader community.
  • Provide effective and affordable youth-friendly community-based care and rehabilitation.
  • Foster resilience and advance mental disorder prevention and mental health promotion.
  • Integrate mental health services and/or wellbeing interventions into existing education systems.
  • Address the mental health needs of young people exposed to violence with a trauma-informed approach.
  • Inventively leverage technology that is highly used and trusted by young people.
