Two upcoming calls within the National Programme on Mental Health Research
In April 2023, Forte plans to open two different calls within the research area of mental health. Both calls are carried out within the framework of Fortes national research program for mental health.
In the Government’s research and innovation bill 2020, Forte was commissioned to establish a ten-year national research programme on mental health. The work within the research program is guided by a strategic agenda where stress-related mental illness and it is relation to sick leave are emphasized as priority areas. Another prioritized area is research on the organization and structure of the welfare system related to mental health. To meet the societal challenges and research needs that exist, Forte is now opening two calls in these areas.
Stress related mental health problems focusing on rehabilitation, cooperation, and a sustainable working life
In recent years, mental illness has become one of the most common causes of sick leave in Sweden. Therefore, Forte is opening a call about stress related mental health problems focusing on rehabilitation, cooperation, and a sustainable working life, in cooperation with Försäkringskassan.
In this call, researchers will be able to apply for project grants and a total of approximately SEK 50 million will be allocated for the years 2023–2026.
Research reviews focusing on the organisation and structure of the welfare sector in relation to mental health
This research area includes research that relates to certain contexts in the welfare sector, such as schools, student health, the care chain, child, and adolescent psychiatry. The common denominator are issues related to the organisation and structure of the welfare sector in relation to mental health.
This call has research reviews as a form of grant and a total of at least SEK 5 million is allocated for the years 2023–2024.
The call will open in April 2023 and will be advertised on Forte’s website
