Call for Applications: American Psychiatric Foundation Typical or Troubled? Grant Program
The Typical or Troubled? School Mental Health Education Program was developed by the American Psychiatric Foundation to address the important role adults can have in a teen's life and the importance of early identification. By encouraging and equipping adults (such as parents and teachers) who closely interact with adolescents to notice the warning signs of mental health problems, to be prepared with intervention strategies, and to know where to refer teens for help in addressing these issues, the program becomes an essential element in ensuring student health and safety.
At its core, Typical or Troubled? is an evidence-based program that has been successfully working with school communities as a companion program with existing school safety and physical health programs across the nation to improve student mental health through early recognition, intervention, and treatment. To date, the curriculum has been presented in nearly 2,000 schools nationwide in urban, suburban, and rural school communities.
The Foundation is now accepting applications from community organizations, schools, and school districts to apply to implement the Typical or Troubled? program in middle and high schools. Those who have already implemented Typical or Troubled? may apply for the Innovations Grant.
Applicants can apply to implement the Typical or Troubled? and/or Típico o Problemático? programs at high schools and middle schools in their community.
Standard grant support is as follows:
For implementation in two to four high schools - Grant in the amount of $1,000
For implementation in five or more high schools - Grant in the amount of $2,000
We expect to award 25 to 30 grants.

International Spine Intervention Society Call for Grant Proposals on High Priority Topics
ISIS is committed to funding research that will address important questions about the effectiveness of interventional spine procedures. The ISIS Research Committee is working to identify important gaps to be addressed in the interventional spine evidence base and encourage research in these areas. To this end, the committee has been working on developing study protocol outlines in areas where more research is likely to be meaningful to our field.
The first four priority areas where ISIS would like to see well-designed and executed research studies conducted are addressed in the following research protocol outlines:
• Does provocation lumbar discography cause premature disc degeneration or herniation?
• Efficacy of repeat TFESIs for radicular pain due to HNP
• Cervical medial branch radiofrequency neurotomy for whiplash induced cervical facet joint pain
• Prevalence estimate of extra-articular sacroiliac joint pain in chronic low back pain subjects using dual diagnostic lateral sensory branch blocks
Investigators interested in carrying out these studies and seeking ISIS grant funding should follow the ISIS procedures for submitting grant proposals, outlined below. Proposals are carefully vetted by the Research Committee, and funding of research proposals is approved at the semi-annual ISIS Board of Directors meetings.
Deadlines for submission are May 1st and November 1st.
