CMHDARN network members are invited to submit an application for the CMHDARN Research Mental Health and Alcohol and Other Drugs Seeding Grants program.The Seeding Grants provide an opportunity for organisations to initiate a research project that will contribute to the understanding, knowledge and implementation of experience and outcome measures across mental health and alcohol and other drugs services.Two $9,000 grants are available.
The research project should address the topic of how knowledge is gathered and translated from experience and outcome measures into practice.
Potential projects looking at; how we determine which measures tell us what we need to know; what approaches utilise client experience most effectively; how we address questions of bias in gathering information; how we translate findings into practice; and how we embed reflective practice in service delivery, will be considered.
CMHDARN encourages applications from early career and/or consumer/client and carer lived experience researchers working across the mental health and AOD fields. Applicants must be either MHCC or NADA members.
