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


COMPETITION NOW CLOSED: 3 Child/Youth e-Mental Health Impact Grants

We teamed up with the Ontario Centre of Excellence for Child & Youth Mental Health on three grants valued at $100,000 each to support an important research challenge: how can we use technology to enhance or support child and youth mental health in Ontario — and ideally beyond!

We believe, in today’s digital world, there are technological solutions for many of the barriers and challenges that Ontario’s children, youth and families face in seeking help. These solutions just haven’t been discovered or fully mined. So if you’re a researcher or an innovator with a big idea who’s knowledgeable about child and youth mental health, we want to hear from you!

We’re looking to fund three projects that advance innovative, evidence-based digital solutions and have the potential for broad and deep impact. We will give priority to proposals that can be scaled within and beyond the province of Ontario.

We invite you to carefully read the attached Call for Proposals – Child/Youth e-Mental Health Impact Grant for detailed information on grant eligibility and criteria. As the proposal states, you or your co-investigator MUST BE a leader or member of one of Ontario’s lead or core service-providing agencies.

While a team application is required, each grant will be awarded DIRECTLY to the associated core agency.
