NIHR Themed Calls: Promotion of good mental health and the prevention or treatment of mental ill health

NIHR Themed Calls: Promotion of good mental health and the prevention or treatment of mental ill health
A call for research for the promotion of good mental health and the prevention or treatment of mental ill health  across the whole life course. The National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) welcomes proposals for clinical and applied health research that evaluate healthcare interventions, health services, social care or public health measures operating at either the individual, or the population level. Issues of particular interest include proposals that utilise new digital health technologies or investigate their effects.

Applications are encouraged that include geographic populations with high disease burden which have been historically under served by NIHR research activity. Relevant information is available as a guide for applicants (2015 Compendium) and NIHR recruitment data provided by the Clinical Research Network.

Applicants should justify the importance of their proposed research and identify how these support aspirations for research in mental health set out in the Five Year Forward View For Mental Health and the ‘Framework for Mental Health Research in the United Kingdom’ led by the Department of Health.
