NIHR 2018 themed call: ‘Promotion of good mental health and the prevention or treatment of mental ill health’ across the whole life course

  Created on Monday, 11 Dec 2017. Posted in News Items

NIHR is welcoming 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

The remit for this call includes conditions listed in the Health Research Classification System (HRCS) category ‘Mental Health’. Studies may include individuals with co-morbidities included in HRCS category ‘Neurological’, provided the main focus remains the mental health condition. 

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).

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.

For more information please see the specification document.
