The National Health and Medical Research Council has announced $2 million of new research funding through its Medical Research Future Fund (MRFF) for a 2020 Bushfire Impact Research Grant Opportunity.

The $2 million has been earmarked to go towards researching the long-term mental health impacts of bushfire events, as well as building mental health resilience following the 2019-20 bushfire events.

This is an opportunity for RANZCP members to contribute to the understanding of the mental health effects of bushfires and inform policies for preparing and responding to future bushfire events.
