Mental illness is 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 encumbrance, Grand Challenges Canada has committed up to $6 million in its most recent call for proposal, called ‘Integrated Innovations to Improve Treatments & Expand Access to Care’. Grand Challenges Canada is seeking bold ideas for products, services, policies, and implementation models that test 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.

Projects are funded through both seed grants as well as transition-to-scale funding. The application deadline is January 9, 2014. Find all the details here:
