Winston Churchill Memorial Trust: Mental Health Fellowships
With one in six people in the UK experiencing a mental health problem in any given week, Mental health is a growing concern in the UK and worldwide.
The Winston Churchill Memorial Trust runs the Churchill Fellowships: a unique programme of overseas research grants that support UK citizens from all parts of society to travel the world in search of innovative solutions for today’s most pressing problems. The three-year Mental Health Fellowships Programme have been running in partnership with The Mental Health Foundation since 2016. During this time, the Mental Health Fellows have been investigating examples of best practice in other countries, bringing back new evidence and ideas and creating positive change in their profession and communities here in the UK.
In setting up the mental health fellowship programme, the Winston Churchill Memorial Trust has raised the profile of mental health and facilitated the development of future leaders in the field who can help us make the UK a mentally healthier place for future generations.
The WCMT are this year offering Fellowships in the following areas: Arts for the built environment, Education, Emergency response, Enterprise & social impact, Environment, Conservation & sustainable living, Healthcare, Palliative and end of life care, Physical activity for healthier lives, Rural living, Science, Technology & engineering, Suicide prevention. Details on all of these can be found here.
The deadline for applications is 5pm on 17th September 2019.
