MRF Launchpad Grants in Mental Health

Closing Date: 27/09/2021

Two-year grants to support early-career and mid-career researchers, including clinical academics, undertaking multidisciplinary research to improve understanding, diagnosis and treatment of mental health.

The Medical Research Foundation (MRF) Launchpad Grants in Mental Health will support early- and mid-career researchers, including clinical academics, conducting research to improve understanding of mental health and improve diagnosis, treatment and recovery.

It is anticipated that researchers will form multidisciplinary partnerships with researchers from other fields and that the funding support will act as a launchpad to stimulate larger funding opportunities and further research.

Grants can be used to conduct pilot studies, generate data and collaborations, and develop competitive research proposals for larger funding.

Applications from across the broad field of mental health research are welcomed, with particular encouragement given to areas that have been identified as in need of funding through consultation with external experts to build capacity in the field or address previous underfunding, including ADHD, Tourette’s, suicide and self-harm, and trauma-related mental health.
