With funding support from sponsor FirstRisk Advisors, the American College Health Foundation is inviting applications for the FirstRisk Advisors Initiatives in College Mental/Behavioral Health Funding program.
The program is driven by growing national concerns regarding the prevalence and complexity of mental and behavioral health issues among college students and the negative impact these disorders have on the health and safety of higher education communities, student retention, student learning/academic progress, and the human potential of students.
Through the program, a single grant of $3,500 will be awarded in support of a creative initiative that addresses prevention, early intervention, and/or treatment for mental and behavioral health disorders among students. The goal of the program is to contribute to a reduction in the risk of mental and behavioral illness and injury among college students and to enhance both individual and community health as a strategy in support of student learning.
To be eligible, applicants must be a campus health professional who is an American College Health Association individual member or employed at an ACHA member institution.
