NIHR Public Health Research (PHR) Programme-Interventions to promote mental health and wellbeing among young women

  Tuesday, 04 Apr 2023 | Funding Deadline

The Public Health Research (PHR) Programme funds research to generate evidence to inform the delivery of non-NHS interventions, intended to improve the health of the public, and reduce inequalities in health.

Over the last two decades, there has been a steady increase in mental ill-health amongst women and this trend is largely driven by young women in their teens and twenties. Over a quarter of young women experience a common mental disorder which is almost three times more than young men. In addition, there is evidence that the COVID-19 pandemic has had a disproportionate impact on young people, including young women.

The PHR Programme is accepting Stage 1 applications to their commissioned workstream for the research topic: What interventions are effective to promote good mental health and wellbeing among young women aged 12-24?

Deadline for proposals: 4 April 2023
