The Martín-Baró Fund: Inviting applications for ‘grant’ to deal with the mental health consequences of violence and political repression.

Funding brief: The Martín-Baró Fund has a strong preference for projects which are developing innovative and progressive ways to deal with the mental health consequences of violence and political repression. Applicants should understand that they do not view mental health and human rights as issues which can be addressed separately, but are seeking to fund activities which explore the links between them.

You can get a better idea of our interests by visiting some of the other pages on this website. They particularly urge you to read our Mission Statement, and to look at the descriptions of some of the projects they have funded in the past. Please also keep in mind that they usually fund only six to eight projects per year.
