The Grand Challenges family of initiatives fosters innovation to solve key health and development problems. See below for Grand Challenges and related grant opportunities.
Grand Challenges Canada's Global Mental Health program is seeking innovative and transformative approaches to enhance mental health literacy and provide youth-friendly services to address the needs of the most underserved 10 to 24 year olds in low- and middle-income countries. Innovations must take a person-centered, rights-based approach, and must involve young people with lived experiences of mental health challenges from the outset. Successful proposals will be awarded seed grants of up to $250,000 CAD to develop and test the proposed innovation.
