The Movember Foundation- Mental Health and Wellbeing Projects for Canadian Men and Boys

The Movember Foundation is pleased to announce a Request for Applications (RFA) for mental health and wellbeing projects for Canadian men and boys.

There is $8 Million available for collaborative, innovative mental health projects.

Proposals are being requested from organizations that wish to collaboratively develop new mental health projects that will contribute to change at the population level, with a specific focus on prevention, early intervention and stigma reduction.

Proposals should address one or more of the following priority areas:
1.  Creating mentally healthy workplaces and workers
2.  Strengthening the mental health and wellbeing of men and boys
3.  Reducing the number of men and boys who die by suicide
4.  Strengthening social and emotional skills in young men and boys

This is an opportunity for the Canadian mental health community, and beyond, to achieve significant results on boys’ and men’s mental health and wellbeing.
