The International Alliance of Mental Health Research Funders

brain scan

RAND played a key role in the early years of the International Alliance of Mental Health Research Funders (formerly the Science of Science for Mental Health Initiative) supporting the Graham Boeckh Foundation to establish a 'think tank without borders' to undertake research and analysis into mental health research funding.

The Alliance has developed into a collaborative initiative focussed on greater knowledge exchange and collaboration within the sector with the main objective to increase the impact of mental health research funding.

In a sense, the global mental health research funding community is a nascent sector and the role of the Alliance is to help develop it. Since its beginning the Alliance membership has grown substantially to a diverse group of member organisations from around the world with a wealth of experience and knowledge in research funding.
