The Medical Research Future Fund (MRFF) – Million Minds Mission – 2020 Mental Health Research Grant Opportunity will support research into the following mental health priority areas: new mechanisms for early identification and prevention amongst children and adolescents; treatments for those with treatment resistant or treatment refractory mental health conditions; initiatives to address the physical health of individuals with mental illness; and mechanisms to support access to treatment.

To deliver these projects the successful researchers under this grant opportunity will be required to establish mental health clinical trial networks as part of their research project to ensure effective engagement with clinicians, national collaboration and coordination, and rapid implementation into clinical practice. It is anticipated that this Grant Opportunity will fund two mental health clinical trial networks, one focussing on children and youth; and another on adults.

This grant opportunity is being administered by NHMRC on behalf of the Australian Government Department of Health.
