Mental Health Research Canada: Investigate Mental-Health Impacts of COVID-19 on Families Who Care for Children with Special Needs
Sponsor: Mental Health Research Canada
Description: Mental Health Research Canada (MHRC), the B.C. Ministry of Children and Family Development (MCFD) and the Michael Smith Foundation for Health Research (MSFHR) are partnering on a new research grant valued at $50,000. The goal is to better understand how COVID-19 impacts the mental health of children, youth and families in British Columbia, and to identify evidence-based, promising programs and practices to mitigate these impacts.
As the proposal states, the project must be led by two co-principal investigators who are:
1. Residents of British Columbia;
2. A researcher/academic from an accredited British Columbia-based academic institution, health authority or community organization;
3. A leader or member of a British Columbia-based care or service provider with direct experience in the proposed research and interest in its intended outcomes; and
4. Supported by a team who includes a child, youth, family member and/or caregiver who has lived experience within your chosen research focus.
