This Request for Proposals represents a new initiative by the Huntsman Mental Health Institute (HMHI). We are seeking proposals for one-year pilot projects that focus on mental health with the goal of deepening our understanding of mental health disorders and/or improving the quality, impact, and sustainability of optimized interventions for mental health care.
This RFP will provide one year of funding for all selected pilot projects involving Principal Investigators from a wide range of departments at the University of Utah. Investigators may request up to $75,000 for a proposed project. The Principal Investigator must be a faculty member at the University of Utah. Proposals that include at least one clinical investigator are strongly encouraged. Investigators may compete for a second year of funding depending on research progress and the plan for obtaining sustained funding.
