Description:

The objective of the MRFF – Coronavirus Research Response – 2020 COVID-19 Mental Health Research grant opportunity is to support research to understand how the mental health system can be enhanced to be most effective and responsive during and following the acute COVID-19 crisis. This may include consolidating data systems, helping to design and deliver new treatments, new services, and new policies both during and beyond the crisis. 

The anticipated outcome of the research is to positively impact the lives of a significant number of Australians, especially those with pre-existing mental health issues and those with mental health issues arising from the COVID-19 crisis. The outcome of the research is also expected to have application beyond COVID-19 and extend to other natural disasters and widespread times of hardship.

In the context of the rapidly evolving nature of the COVID-19 crisis, the grant opportunity requires applicants to work rapidly from early 2020-21 to understand the enhancements required within the mental health system to enable it to be as effective and responsive as possible in managing the mental health and wellbeing community impacts of a crisis.

This grant opportunity is being administered by NHMRC on behalf of the Commonwealth Department of Health.
