This call welcomes applications for one to three years of project funding for practice-oriented research into mental illness. The call focuses on two areas: early interventions regarding mental illness and coordinated interventions for people with severe psychiatric problems.
The Swedish government has tasked Forte with allocating grants to stimulate practice-oriented research into mental illness. This task focuses on two areas:
- Preventive and early interventions regarding mental illness.
- Coordinated interventions for people with severe psychiatric problems.
There is a need for greater knowledge on practical methods of early and preventive intervention for people with mental illness and coordinated interventions for people with severe psychiatric problems. Forte is therefore making funding available for practice-oriented research, by which it means research that is a collaboration between academia and actors within, for example, primary care, psychiatry, social services, dependency care and civil society.
See the document “Information about the call” for more detailed descriptions of the call’s focus areas.
