Mental Health

What do we mean by mental health?

People who are managing mental health problems resulting in significant disruption to everyday living or in recovery from an episode of such problems occurring in the last two years.

What are we funding? 

Our funding supports charities with a strong track record of working with:

People who are managing mental health problems resulting in significant disruption to everyday living or in recovery from an episode of such problems occurring in the last two years.

This includes people managing conditions such as depression, schizophrenia or eating disorders. It does not include neurological conditions such as dementia or acquired brain injuries.

As we want to support people who are most affected by this complex social issue, it is likely that the people you are supporting will be experiencing enduring mental health problems and will have received a clinical diagnosis.

We are particularly interested in receiving applications from specialist mental health providers, working to address a gap in statutory provision.

Questions your assessor may ask include:

  • How are the people you support significantly affected in their everyday living? 
  • What % of the people you support have a clinical diagnosis
  • Where do your referrals come from?
  • What gap(s) in statutory provision are you addressing/ filling?
