Apply for Funding

We invite researchers and innovators to engage with MHRC as we determine our research priorities and advocate for mental health research in Canada.

Our Call for Proposals is now closed!


The Call for Proposals for the MENTAL HEALTH INNOVATION PRIZE, created by MHRC and the Institute for Advancements in Mental Health (IAM), is closed!

We thank all the innovators and researchers who applied. We are thrilled by the high-calibre quality of  applications.

Next step: The Mental Health Innovation Prize Advisory Group will review and evaluate all submitted Letters of Intent and then select the semi-finalists who will be invited by email (in November) to submit a Full Proposal.

MHRC and IAM look forward to announcing the winning innovator(s) or researcher(s) in the New Year!
