The National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) has announced a set of areas of interest that will inform future funding opportunities offered by the institute. These new concept clearances may serve as the basis for future funding opportunities offered by NIMH.
Psychological scientists will likely be most interested in the following newly-approved concepts:
- Behavioral Tasks Targeting Brain Subsystems Relevant to Anhedonia
- Mentoring Networks for Mental Health Research Education
- Mood Disorders in People Living with HIV: Mechanisms and Pathways
- Short Courses for Mental Health Research Education
- Mental Health Consultation via Telehealth to Optimize Care for Emergency Department Patients with Suicide Risk
- Social Drivers of Mental Illnesses in Low- & Middle-Income Countries: Mechanisms and Pathways of Interventions for Youth
- Effectiveness of Implementing Sustainable Evidence-Based Mental Health Practices in Low-Resource Settings to Achieve Equity in Outcomes for Traditionally Underserved Populations
Although NIMH intends to fund grants related to these concepts, funding is not guaranteed.
“This listing of potential future initiatives is meant to provide the earliest possible alert to potential applicants in order to maximize application preparation time,” advises NIMH. “While the NIMH plans to proceed with these initiatives, their publication and timing is not certain and depends on sufficient funds being available.”
Stay tuned to the APS website to be notified when these concepts are open for submissions.
