NIHR boosts its support for research to tackle mental health effects of COVID-19

  Monday, 21 Dec 2020 | Funding Deadline

The NIHR is ramping up its support for research on the impact of COVID-19 on mental health, by seeking to fund new research on the acute mental health effects of the pandemic and offering priority delivery support for research on severe mental health problems.

The NIHR has issued a new call for research proposals on rapid identification and mitigation of the acute mental health effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, in partnership with UK Research and Innovation (UKRI). This highlight notice, which forms part of NIHR’s rapid response rolling funding call with UKRI, seeks research proposals on how the measures imposed to reduce the spread of the virus could affect immediate mental health and the role of other factors, such as stigma, isolation, bereavement and trauma (including trauma following intensive care treatment in COVID-19 patients with severe illness).


Deadline for proposals: 21st December 2020
