Improving Mental Health in mid-life – May 31

Bupa UK’s Improving Mental Health funding programme closes on Friday May 31.

Mental wellbeing underpins good health and impacts everyone. It is estimated that one in four people will experience a mental health problem each year, yet many will receive no treatment at all.

For some mid-life can be a time of increased responsibilities, challenges and pressures, in their working lives, family lives and relationships. The prevalence of mental illness peaks among people in their middle years.

Within this funding programme the Bupa UK Foundation is looking to fund practical, community-focused projects that will support and improve people’s mental health at this critical life-stage.

Applications must meet the following criteria

  • Your project or initiative will support people in mid-life. Suggested age range 30s to 50s.
  • Your project focuses specifically on supporting and improving people’s mental health and wellbeing, rather than on addressing wider social issues.
  • Your application clearly explains how you will reach, engage and directly support individuals in improving their mental health and wellbeing.
  • Your application outlines how you will measure and evaluate the difference your project makes to the mental health and wellbeing of individual participants.

The maximum amount that can be awarded is £20,000.

Organisations are limited to one application.
