Klingenstein Third Generation Foundation Issues RFP for Projects That Increase Access to Mental Health Care for Children

The Klingenstein Third Generation Foundation seeks to encourage a meaningful, long-term contribution to the field of child and adolescent ADHD and depression.

To that end, the foundation has issued an RFP for its Addressing Access to Care initiative. Launched in 2015, the initiative aims to help parents access appropriate and high-quality care that addresses the challenging mental health needs of their children.

The foundation invites proposals for investigator-initiated projects that demonstrate the benefits of new healthcare delivery methods or prevention approaches. In particular, KTGF is most interested in improving access to mental health care for children through the use of novel models or approaches, including but not limited to expanding the number of professional and paraprofessional treatment personnel who are trained to deliver mental health services, delivering care in non-psychiatric settings (e.g., primary care, schools, home, or other novel settings), digital technology (e.g., the internet, apps for cell phones), and approaches that help parents access care for their children. KTGF is particularly interested in funding applications that build on promising pilot work that aims to develop larger demonstration projects. Two grants of up to $50,000 per year for up to two years will be awarded.

Academic researchers from universities or research institutions that provide mental and behavioral health programs for children and adolescents are eligible. Investigators can be at any stage in their career but must have collected enough pilot data to inform the development of the proposed research project and must be well enough established to lead an effort such as this. For investigators who are relatively early in their career, the foundation recommends partnering with a more senior academic researcher who has expertise in program development and dissemination.

For complete program guidelines and application instructions, see the Klingenstein Third Generation Foundation website.

Deadline: January 13, 2022
