The Trust works closely with The Mental Health Foundation and historically has funded a lot of mental health fellowships. Although this year’s categories do not specifically include mental health, there is an Open category that it could be applied for. Here are some examples of Fellows who have looked at issues related to mental health, to mark Mental Health Awareness week:

Suicide Prevention, Healthcare, Nursing and Allied Health Professions, re. www.wcmt.org.uk
