Klingenstein Third Generation Foundation invites applications for mental health care research

The Klingenstein Third Generation Foundation awards fellowship grants annually to outstanding post-doctoral candidates who are investigating the causes, prevention, and treatment of children and adolescents with ADHD or depression, especially those from low-income families and under-resourced communities, or other marginalized populations that may have limited supports and resources.

In 2015, the foundation initiated the “Transformation of Mental Health Care,” a program focused on improving access to high-quality mental health care for children and adolescents, especially those from low-income families and under-resourced communities or other marginalized populations that may have limited support and resources. This includes families that come from diverse racial and ethnic backgrounds and families that live in poverty.

The foundation solicits applications for academic investigators researching to demonstrate the benefits of novel ways to access or deliver mental health care or prevention approaches that can be implemented at scale. This application is specifically for high-quality research that builds upon promising pilot work and will lead to a larger demonstration project. In particular, the foundation is interested in improving access to high-quality mental health care and prevention for children and adolescents through the use of novel models or promising approaches, including 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.

The foundation expects to make up to two grant awards of $100,000 annually for two years. Payment of the second year of funding is contingent on sufficient progress during the first year of the grant.

Academic researchers from universities, research institutions, health systems, or other settings positioned to provide rigorous, high-quality research focused on transforming mental and behavioral health care that improves outcomes for children and adolescents are eligible. Investigators must reside within institutions based in the United States, where all research on the project will be completed.

Deadline: January 15, 2024
