The Programme will only accept applications in underpinning development work that take a population - or community-level approach.
- Work to understand what data are collected on young women’s use of services, programmes and interventions to prevent and reduce mental health problems. For example, data collected by services dedicated to the provision of mental health support, services primarily for women or young women or other statutory organisations for whole populations such as CAMHs, local authority and third sector services.
- Secondary analyses of existing data.
- Underpinning research such as epidemiology. For example, investigations of prevalence within specific groups of young women or broader epidemiological assessments that may inform intervention research. This could include attention given to the scale, types and pattern of mental health problems, regional variations, ethnicity, socio-economic group, age group or causative factor.
- Development of networks or partnerships to support intervention research. For example, across or within particular geographical areas or services that young women access or settings where young women gather.
- Local or regional needs assessments to identify priorities for future research.
- Analysis of how current interventions to prevent or reduce mental health problems in the general population or other specific population groups may be applied to young women and consideration of possible new approaches.
- Analysis of how current interventions, where the primary focus of the intervention is not necessarily on improving mental health, could be evaluated to understand the impact on wellbeing and mental health.
- Identification and engagement of relevant stakeholders. For example, with specific communities and groups of young women, families and carers, policy makers, service providers.
The forthcoming funding call on interventions to promote mental health and wellbeing among young women is still in development. However, if you have specific questions about this funding call, please contact email@example.com, and we will answer where possible.
