Do you work for a CMO/NGO and have a passion or idea that you'd like to further develop or turn into a research project?
Perhaps you'd like to apply for a CMHDARN Research Seeding Grant? 
Looking to further develop your research skills? 
Interested in building better services for people living with mental health and/or alcohol and other drugs issues? 

We're holding a practical one-day workshop on 27 April 2017 to help service providers kickstart their ideas into action and to launch the CMHDARN Research Seeding Grants, a small grants program that provides MHCC and NADA members with access to one-off funding of up to $10,000 (GST excl) to enhance research capacity. 

On the day you will have the opportunity to:    

  • Pitch your idea to experienced researchers who can help you develop your idea into a project proposal.    
  • Learn about different research methods and get advice on how to best carry out your project.    
  • Garner support and potential mentorship through CMHDARN's Mentoring Program.    
  • Hear about the CMHDARN Research Seeding Grants program and how it can help you get your project off the ground.    
  • Get advice on how to garner support and buy-in from your organisation and other partners.    
  • Hear from other service providers about the challenges you may face and how to overcome them.    
  • Learn about cultivating research integrity and how to involve consumers in a real and meaningful way.    
  • Walk away from the day with a solid project proposal to apply for funding support. 


You will need to come prepared with an idea or research question to the workshop (a template will be provided).
