$1 million on offer for innovative ideas to improve wellbeing in Psychosocial Grants program

Do you have an innovative idea or a new style of psychosocial program that is evidenced based and non-clinical and will assist in increasing individual and community wellbeing?

Recurring disaster trauma throughout the Hunter New England and Central Coast Primary Health Network (HNECC) region, and all of NSW, has taken its toll on communities in profound ways.

Community cohesion, resilience and participation in informal social connectedness (such as having contact with friends, family and neighbours), and civic engagement (including organised community activities) appear to play an important and positive role, influencing mental health outcomes.

To support the development of such wellbeing-focused activities, the PHN is offering $1 million in grant funding for evidence based non-clinical psychosocial programs that will assist in increasing individual and community wellbeing, providing much needed low intensity mental health options.

We will be looking for projects, pilots and programs that embrace the general criteria and also align with the PHN strategic plan, particularly our priority of increasing equity of access to primary care.

Grants of $50,000 - $200,000 are on offer to a total funding pool of $1 million.

They will be one off and time limited to meet community need, running through until 30th June 2025.

Grant applications opened on Monday 29th April and will close at 5.00pm on 31 May 2024.
