Leveraging individual efforts to increase impact

Through collaboration, we mobilize the collective expertise of research funders worldwide so that each funder can have greater impact on the field. 

Leading and facilitating high-impact projects.

Through our network, research funders converge to address key gaps and challenges in the mental health sector that require international collaboration. 

Promoting mental health knowledge exchange and collaboration.

The IAMHRF facilitates knowledge sharing to avoid duplication of efforts and hasten progress. It enables funders, many of whom are meeting each other for the first time, to collaborate around national and international priorities. 

Changing the way mental health research is funded.

International collaboration is needed to balance funding that addresses the current burden of mental health issues and other funding committed to the long-term development of scientific knowledge and potential cures.
