Brain Canada and JDRF are pleased to officially launch the JDRF Canada – Brain Canada Addressing Mental Health in Type 1 Diabetes Team Grants, a program to support research on the development, validation, or implementation of interventions that address mental health concerns in people with type 1 diabetes.
This new funding opportunity is open to research teams of two or more independent investigators from different institutions, or distinct departments within the same institution.
The JDRF Canada – Brain Canada Addressing Mental Health in Type 1 Diabetes Team Grants is offering two grants of up to $250,000 each over two years to fund the development and testing of sustainable, scalable approaches that will enable improved support for Canadians who live with type 1 diabetes and are affected by mental health disorders, and will translate into better quality of life and diabetes-related health outcomes for these populations.
Projects of interest include those that:
- Focus on interventions (e.g., behavioral health, peer support, clinical algorithms, etc.) that support these populations
- Consider mental health disorders such as depression, eating disorders, diabetes distress, etc.
- Address high-risk groups of particular interest (e.g., children & adolescents, young adults, diverse populations, etc.)
