NIMH: Functioning of People with Mental Disorders
Deadline: September 7, 2011
Although considerable advances have been made in improving the symptoms associated with mental disorders, symptom improvement is often only modestly associated with improvements in daily functioning (i.e., the performance of social, occupational, and instrumental tasks of daily living), and most current treatments have limited impact on the functioning and participation of those with mental disorders. The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA), issued by the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), is the application of biobehavioral science methods and approaches to: a) develop and refine definitions and measures of function, disability, and daily participation relevant to those with mental disorders; b) understand the ecological mechanisms, independent of symptom severity, that contribute to functioning and disability in this population; and c) develop and test novel interventions that specifically and directly target functional capacity and performance deficits of this population. Emphasis will be on the application of basic behavioral processes (e.g., cognition, affect, knowledge, attitudes, motivation, learning, decision-making, interpersonal processes), and environmental parameters (e.g., social support, structural adaptations, community involvement) that influence functional outcome.
NIDA: Diversity-Promoting Institutions Drug Abuse Research Program (DIDARP)
This FOA issued by the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), National Institutes of Health, encourages Research Project Grant (R24) applications from institutions that historically and/or currently serve students from diverse and disadvantaged backgrounds that aim to increase their capacity to conduct drug abuse and addiction research.

NIH: Contextual Approaches to Prevention of Unintended Pregnancy
R01 Deadline: January 7, 2012
The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to strengthen and revitalize scientific research on the prevention of unintended pregnancies in the United States. The Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) invites R01 research grant applications that will inform interventions addressing the cultural and structural factors that produce high rates of unintended pregnancy across the reproductive age span, especially in low-income populations in the United States. These interventions can operate at a wide range of levels, from clinical interventions to interventions that influence cultural, economic, social, structural, and/or policy factors contributing to unintended pregnancy.
