Confidence in Global Mental Health Research: Institutional “pump-priming” awards to develop new opportunities in Global Mental Health Research

The purpose of this call is to provide institutional “pump-priming” funds that will lay the grounds for future large scale, multi-disciplinary, cross-country global mental health research bids to address issues of primary relevance to LMICs. It is expected that these funds will help develop new strategies in global mental health research, with a particular focus on the aetiology and epidemiology of mental illness and healthy mental development, and understanding how challenges to early brain development affect mental illness and cognition.
