The National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) has announced up to £30 million in new funding to support international collaborative research into mental health in low- and middle-income countries. The funding represents one of the largest single public investments in global mental health research.

The NIHR has issued a call for funding applications under the Global Health Research Programme which will award Official Development Assistance funding for mental health research to researchers in the United Kingdom and low- and middle-income countries working in partnership.

The funding will be awarded by NIHR’s Research and Innovation for Global Health Transformation (RIGHT) funding stream through a funding competition opening in January 2019. NIHR RIGHT funds cutting-edge interdisciplinary applied health research in key areas in low- and middle-income countries where a strategic and targeted investment can have a transformative impact.

NIHR Global Health Research Units and Groups are currently working on 7 research projects with a mental health element, covering topics such as violence against women, psychosis outcomes, post-conflict trauma, and living with multiple morbidities.
