Queensland Mental Health Commission’s Stronger Community Mental Health and Wellbeing Grants Program 2017–18 closing 30 June 2017
Queensland local government, non-government and community organisations are invited to apply for up to $50,000 under their Stronger Community Mental Health and Wellbeing Grants Program 2017–18.
These grants are available to enable organisations to implement innovative, locally-led, collaborative initiatives that support the implementation of particular priorities under the Queensland Mental Health, Drug and Alcohol Strategic Plan 2014-2019.
This year’s round of grants will support evidence-based initiatives that promote social inclusion and reduce stigma and discrimination by encouraging community participation for people experiencing mental health problems, mental illness or problematic alcohol and other drug use, or who have been affected by suicide.
The Grants Program will also consider the needs of groups that are at a greater risk, including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, people living in rural and remote Queensland, people who identify as LGBTIQ and other groups at risk of marginalisation.
The total investment for this year’s Grants Program is $600,000.
Applications must be received by 3pm on Friday, 30 June 2017
