Call for Expressions of Interest: Mental Health Promotion

The Church of Ireland recently announced a major three–year, all–island, mental health promotion programme entitled ‘Mental Health Promotion across the Church of Ireland and Wider Community’. The project aims to transform the understanding of, attitudes towards, and responses to mental health within the Church of Ireland and the wider community. It has been made possible by a significant grant from Allchurches Trust – one of the UK and Ireland’s largest grant–making charities.

The Representative Church Body of the Church of Ireland is now seeking to engage a researcher/team of researchers to undertake a significant piece of research, commencing in January 2021:

– Phase 1 will establish baseline measurements of the awareness of, and attitudes towards, mental health across the Church of Ireland, and inform a programme of mental health promotion and training activities at a national and local level.

– Phase 2 (Spring 2023) will assess the impact of the promotion and training activities, and build a framework to support the future development of a cohesive, sustainable, mental health strategy for the Church of Ireland

More information is available in the research brief available here.  The closing date for receipt of quotations is 5pm, Friday, 20th November.
