CGMT: Mental Health Innovation Fund

Through this scheme, Cameron Gunn Memorial Trust will offer ‘seed-funding’ of between £100 & £2,500, to individuals or organisations who need money to trial new ways to support individuals suffering with poor mental health.

The grant can be used to trial a new service, create an asset, a technology, a performance, fund research, or otherwise experiment in any way that supports the treatment mental health.  The emphasis will be on innovation – using new methods, channels, technology, ideas or approaches to reach out and effect change.  Ideas should typically fit into one of the following categories:

  • Destigmatising Mental Health
  • Reducing Barriers to Mental Health Care
  • Improving Mental Well Being

Note the grants are for project-based activities that demonstrate clear innovation. They will not be made to fund ongoing operational expenses or salaries.

The innovation can involve technology, though it doesn’t have to.  Cameron’s Coasters are a brilliantly simple and non-technical idea, but still innovative in their concept, design and execution.  Another example is Neurodiverse Movement, a weekly programme of one-hour exercise sessions in an autism-friendly environment designed for neurodiverse individuals who would not feel comfortable in a typical gym environment.
