Grand Challenges Canada - Global Mental Health


Mental illness are prevalent in all regions of the world, in every community and across every income level. An estimated 13% of the global burden of disease is attributable to mental disorders, with almost three quarters of this burden affecting people in low- and middle-income countries.

To respond to this burden, Grand Challenges Canada has committed up to $30 million CAD for the most promising Bold Ideas with Big Impact. Our focus is on low- and middle-income countries. Grand Challenges Canada is looking for solutions that demonstrate a clear path to scale and sustainability, have measurable outcomes of increased access to care and improved treatment, and can ultimately serve as models that can be replicated or scaled in other low-resource settings

Request for Proposals
In this call for proposals, Grand Challenges Canada has committed up to $6 million CAD and is seeking bold ideas for products, services, policies, and implementation models that tests how to increase the number of people who have access to care, and how to have the greatest measurable treatment outcome for each person reached in a sustainable manner. Proposals must provide innovative solutions relevant to low-resource settings in low- or middle-income countries. We expect to fund proposals through two funding streams: seed (up to $250,000 CAD) and transition-to-scale (up to $1 million CAD in matched funding).
