    Comic Relief - Thriving not just surviving: Young Men and Mental Health

    Comic Relief has just launched a £1.75 million fund to support vulnerable and disadvantaged young men with mental health problems. 

    The fund supports vulnerable and disadvantaged young men aged between 11 and 20 years with mental health problems. They are seeking proposals to deliver specialised mental health provision which puts the needs of young men at the heart of their work. They will prioritise applications which: have consulted and plan to co-design activities with young men to ensure their needs and interests are met effectively; are working with young men from Black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) communities or those with co-occurring learning disabilities and mental health problems; use activity based interventions (including arts and sports as well as social and cultural activities) as a tool of engagement; promote and recognise the power of peer support and positive role models and incorporate these into their interventions; ensure activities are carried out in non-stigmatising locations. The deadline for applications is 13 October 2017.
