Grant details

Eligibility

This phase of the programme is open only to projects led by staff of South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust and the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience at King’s College London (IoPPN).

About the funding

We have committed to funding £10m between now and 2027 to help people live well with psychosis. The Living Well with Psychosis theme will fund initiatives and research to improve the treatment and support the recovery of people affected by psychotic disorders; support families and carers; and help to address inequalities in the experiences of racialised communities in relation to mental health services. We will support work that focuses on people affected by psychosis, including those living with diagnoses like bipolar disorder, schizophrenia and schizoaffective disorder. 

As we collect and share ideas, evidence and best practice, we aim not only to directly benefit people with experience of psychosis in South East London but also to inform and influence understanding and provision at both a national and an international level. 

Under these broad headings, we have identified a further 8 priority areas.

Priority areas

  1. People affected by psychosis having a greater voice and influence over their own care
  2. Increased access to and engagement with high quality personalised and effective therapy and medication
  3. Increased access to and engagement with high-quality, culturally appropriate peer and family support, information, and advice
  4. The impact of racism and discrimination on access to appropriate care at the right time is addressed
  5. Innovation leading to increased access to and engagement with help to avoid or reduce problematic cannabis use
  6. People affected by psychosis have a better experience of crisis
  7. Better use of data to understand risk and target care
  8. Improved opportunities for employment and volunteering

Deadline

This fund has a rolling deadline and applications will be accepted throughout the year.
