Comic Relief Red Nose Day 2019 – Global Mental Health Matters:

Last updated: 04/08/2022
IATI Identifier: GB-1-205285


The programme will match-fund £2.1million in public donations from Red Nose Day 2019 to make grants to civil society organisations (CSOs) in Sub-Saharan Africa that are working to ensure people with mental health conditions can access the support they need and are empowered to speak out and live free from stigma and discrimination. By investing in their capacity development, CSOs will be supported to thrive and deliver benefit to communities long after programme funding ends. It will provide a template for a larger programme to support Southern CSO capacity development to be launched in 2020.
