Garvey Institute announces new funding opportunity in adolescent and young adult mental heath

Department news | June 30, 2022

The Garvey Institute for Brain Health Solutions (GIBHS) is launching a new round of Innovation Grant funding focused on improving access to effective mental health care for adolescents and young adults.

These one-year grants of up to $100,000 are for the development of innovative, new ideas that have the potential to make a substantial impact on brain health and can be rapidly translated into clinical care and/or improvement. The idea must help advance the Institute’s goals to improve brain health at a population level, and proposals that foster new collaborations across UW schools and departments are strongly encouraged. UW faculty and fellows (if permitted by their school and department and supported by a faculty member) are eligible to apply.

This round of Innovation Grants is focused on projects that aim to improve the Mental Health of Adolescents and Young Adults. Full guidelines and a letter of intent (LOI) application form can be found on the GIBHS websiteLOIs are due August 15, 2022. Please email if you have any questions, and sign-up for the Garvey Institute newsletter to receive funding announcements and other news.
