Basics of Better Mental Health Program

How to Apply: 

Mental illness is the leading cause of disability in Canada. Evidence-based research has established that mental illness is a significant cause of limited quality of life, an important risk factor for premature mortality, and costly with respect to societal welfare.

Brain Canada, Krembil Foundation, and Women’s Brain Health Initiative (WBHI), with the support of The Erika Legacy Foundation and Power Corporation of Canada have launched the Basics of Better Mental Health Program, which will fund experimental research that will provide insight into the causes and onset of mental illnesses, explore the neuropathological changes and information-processing deficits that may eventually lead to new directions for treatments and interventions, and explore the role of sex and gender in mental health.  

The inclusion of sex-specific biological considerations in mental health research is important for understanding the biological roots of mental illnesses. Mental health disorders that may be explored, but are not limited to, in this competition are; depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety disorders, eating disorders, personality disorders, schizophrenia, and substance use disorders.

A $3.3M pool of funds will be available for this program to support three team grants of $1.1M each, over three years.

Engaged Research Grant

How to Apply: 
This program supports research partnerships that empower those who have historically been the subjects of anthropological research, rather than researchers themselves. Designed in alliance with individuals who have borne the impact of marginalization, these partnerships bring together scholars and their interlocutors in an effort to expand anthropological knowledge, combat inequality, and help communities flourish. The program supports projects that will make a significant contribution to anthropological conversations through collaboration and engagement.

Partnership Engage Grants

How to Apply: 

These grants provide short-term and timely support for partnered research activities that will inform decision-making at a single partner organization from the public, private or not-for-profit sector. The small-scale, stakeholder-driven partnerships supported through Partnership Engage Grants are meant to respond to immediate needs and time constraints facing organizations in non-academic sectors. In addressing an organization-specific need, challenge and/or opportunity, these partnerships let non-academic organizations and postsecondary researchers access each other’s unique knowledge, expertise and capabilities on topics of mutual interest.

Resilient Health Systems for All - Concept Notes

How to Apply: 
The Resilient Health Systems for All Call is a 2-stage application process contributing to Canada’s 10-Year Commitment to Global Health and Rights. As a first step, eligible organizations are invited to submit Concept Notes that describe how their projects will sustainably strengthen and build the resilience of health systems in low and middle-income countries (LMICs), particularly at the community and primary health care facility levels.
 
 This Call will fund projects supporting sustainable health systems strengthening, including improved health system resilience in order to face stressors (such as pandemics, but also climate change, democratic deficit, weak governance) that weaken those systems, and delivery of quality, gender-responsive health care services. These projects should enable the people living in the most vulnerable conditions, in particular women, adolescents and children, and persons with disabilities, to achieve improved health and nutrition outcomes, including comprehensive sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR), as defined by the Guttmacher-Lancet Commission.
 
As organizations can only submit one application under 1 of the 2 funding envelopes available through this opportunity as the lead organization, interested applicants are asked to contact Jill Sherman at intl.research@lakeheadu.ca to indicate their interest in applying to this call no later than June 8, 2023.
