Strategic Priorities Fund
The Grantham Institute is one of a number of Imperial’s Centres, Institutes and Departments to be awarded funding by UK Research and Innovation through the prestigious Strategic Priorities Fund. Launched in 2018, the Strategic Priorities Fund (SPF) is one of the UK’s largest, publicly funded programmes of work, supporting high quality multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary research programmes which address government priorities.
The funding has enabled the Climate Cares team to develop aneducational video to raise awareness of the mental health impacts of climate change and invite the public to share their thoughts and feelings about climate change and what it means to them.
The Climate Cares team hope to secure further funding in the future to expand their understanding of emerging mental health needs and determine how mental health systems can best adapt and adjust in a changing world.
