Wolfson Foundation to spend £10m on mental health

The Wolfson Foundation has launched a £10-million funding competition to support outstanding mental-health research, saying it is likely that a single award will be made.

Applications can request funding for endowment of chairs or posts and programme costs for up to five years; attracting talent in the field to work in the UK; training early-career clinical researchers; supporting new research facilities or purchasing equipment.

While research proposals should focus broadly on anxiety and depression, the charity says it is particularly interested in proposals relating to adolescent mental health, as well as those drawing on insights from other areas of medicine.
