The GRP is seeking proposals that study the risk factors associated with poor mental health outcomes in combination with exposure to climate change or chronic climate stressors (e.g. extreme temperatures, flooding; degraded water, air, and environmental quality) and whether specific populations are more susceptible to mental health effects than others. The GRP will accept proposals from U.S. institutions and organizations, excluding federal agencies.

The purpose of this funding opportunity is to identify the different risk factors (e.g. age, race/ethnicity, previous mental health diagnosis, geographic location, socioeconomic status, access to mental health services) and better understand their relationships to climate-induced mental health impacts in the GRP geographic region populations and communities. Specifically, the GRP is interested in:

  1. Understanding the risk factors associated with poor mental health outcomes and climate change or chronic climate stressors within the GRP's geographic region.

  2. Identifying climate-induced mental health disparities that may exist in the GRP's geographic region communities.

  3. Determining, what, if any, potential protective factors could help mitigate poor mental health outcomes.
