MARCH Network Plus Funds second funding call – deadline 31 May 2020

Following consultation, MARCH Network has decided that its current funding call will still go ahead as planned. The topic of the impact of social, cultural and community engagement for mental health appears highly apt given the current isolation measures in place, so some research questions may have an immediate impact on efforts during the Covid-19 pandemic. 
 
The Network anticipates that the cultural and community sectors will be facing massive challenges following the end of this pandemic, so research now – especially on its ‘core’ questions that are open for applications focusing on topics such as sustainability and training – will be more important than ever. Furthermore, current predictions are that there will be even greater mental health needs during and following the end of this pandemic, so the Network would like to support forward-thinking research now that could support practice and policy in the coming months.
 
The Network sees this Plus Funding round as an opportunity to identify and help to meet both mental health needs and also challenges now being faced by the cultural and community sectors.
