Mental Health Grant for Mens’ Health

Movember are excited to announce a new GBP £5.7M Mental Health Grants Funding Program aiming to strengthen the implementation and evaluation of scalable initiatives which currently exist in both the community and/or workplace.

Please note the short turn around for this Mental Health Grant Funding 

Since 2003, Movember has funded more than 1,250 men’s health projects around the world, challenging the status quo, shaking up men’s health research and transforming the way health services reach and support boys and men.

Movember places evidence at the centre of everything we do, ensuring we deliver the greatest impact possible. This approach sees Movember committed to increasing our investment in evidence based mental health initiatives, with a focus on prevention and early intervention programs.

Our ambition is to improve the mental health and wellbeing of boys and men, with an emphasis on those communities who are disproportionately affected.

To achieve this ambition, we will work with partners who have developed evidence-based initiatives specifically tailored to meet the needs of boys and men, enabling further scale and impact through investment and robust evaluation.

GRANT INFORMATION

The Scaling What Works in Community and Workplace grant program will provide funding across a number of Movember’s markets.

A total investment of GBP £5.7M is available over the next two years to support the scaling of existing Community and Workplace initiatives across Australia, Canada, the United Kingdom and Ireland.

This program will fund up to 35 initiatives globally with a focus on scaling initiatives that have already shown promise in improving mental health and/or suicide prevention outcomes for boys and men.

In the UK up to GBP £2,400,000 will be available to fund up to 12 initiatives valued between GBP £200,000 – £400,000.

The primary purpose of the funding is to identify current programs with an underlying evidence-base, assisting partners to scale their reach and impact, ultimately fast-tracking improvements in the mental health and wellbeing of boys and men.
