Funded by the Government of Canada and other partners, Grand Challenges Canada funds innovators in low- and middle-income countries and Canada.
The initiative is launched off the realization that support for mental health services in low- and middle-income countries consistently lags behind other health priorities. Poor mental health in youth negatively impacts the development of social connections, cultural belonging, emotional wellbeing, educational opportunities, and economic resources.
The Global Mental Health seed funding program aims to address the gap in youth mental health services in low- and middle-income countries by funding innovations that enhance mental health literacy and provide youth-friendly services.
The program seeks transformational, affordable, and accessible innovations that have the potential to be sustainable at a larger scale.
Grand Challenges Canada has implemented over 1,300 innovations in 106 countries.
It’s recommended that you start your application at the latest by July 10th, 2020.
