Laura and John Arnold Foundation Accepting Proposals for Ideas to Improve Mental Health Research


The core objective of the Laura and John Arnold Foundation is to address the nation’s most pressing and persistent challenges using evidence-based, multidisciplinary approaches.

As part of this mission, LJAF is seeking Letters of Interest from organizations and scholars with innovative ideas for how to improve the state of mental health research, including clinical psychology and psychiatry research. The foundation is particularly interested in strategies for incentivizing the registration of trials and the full reporting of results through, encouraging greater sharing of data and code, and eliciting the disclosure of information about trials that is normally hidden (e.g., protocols and clinical study reports). Preference will be given to projects that promote the use of randomized controlled trials as a method of independently evaluating clinical psychology interventions and programs.

To be eligible, applicants must be recognized as tax-exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.

Letters of Intent must be received no later than December 15, 2016. Upon review, selected applicants will be invited to submit a full proposal.

See the LJAF website for complete program guidelines and application procedures.
