Initiative "Being" hosted by Grand Challenges Canada

Posted by Jaq-Lin Larder on February 27, 2023 in Announcements

Being is an international mental health initiative, working toward a world where young people feel well and thrive. It is hosted by Grand Challenges Canada in partnership with Fondation Botnar, United for Global Mental Health, Global Affairs Canada and The UK’s Department of Health and Social Care using UK aid through the National Institute for Health and Care Research (NIHR).

Being is looking for researchers, organizations or groups based in a low- or middle-income country to help us understand the mental well-being needs of young people and lead stakeholder engagement efforts in Morocco for up to one year (2023-2024). While Canada can not lead, there may be an opportunity for Canadian researchers to partner on an application.

Those selected will analyze local information on young people’s mental health and well-being and lead stakeholder and network engagement to scope opportunities for investment and collaboration in Morocco.
