The Department of Health and Community Services is inviting applications for the 2018-19 Community Addictions Prevention and Mental Health Promotion Fund Program. The fund provides financial support to individuals, community groups, schools and non-profit organizations interested in increasing awareness and understanding of mental health and addictions in Newfoundland and Labrador.

The application deadline is Friday, December 21, 2018 and program guidelines and application forms are available online at: www.health.gov.nl.ca/health/grantsfunding/CAPMHP_grant.html. Anyone seeking assistance with the application process, can contact their regional health authority contact identified in the application form.

A total of $150,000 in program funding is available for 2018-19. Funding is administered by the Department of Health and Community Services in partnership with the four regional health authorities. Each regional health authority has dedicated mental health promotion and addiction prevention staff members available to provide advice and support to interested applicants.

“When it comes to mental health and addictions it is imperative that we keep talking and listening within our communities. Through this program, we are providing communities the opportunity to become involved in the conversation and to get the word out on the importance of mental health promotion and addictions prevention to our overall health and wellbeing.”
