Mental Health Movement Scholarship

  • Description:

    Despite living in the most prosperous period of history, millions of people are struggling.

    Today, conversations around mental health are unfortunately stigmatized and isolating for the 67 million people across the country who struggle to cope with mental health concerns every day. 

    Additionally, those who suffer also have to worry about what others may think of them because of the regrettable stigma around mental health dialogue. This mission is personally important to me as a medical student who has seen the long-term ramifications of suppressing this conversation.

    To normalize conversation and dialogue around mental health, there must be distinct opportunities to support those who have been impacted by mental health struggles toward their largest goals and aspirations. 

    As a small solution, the Mental Health Movement Scholarship will support one student in any field of study who has battled with mental health or has a loved one who has in the past or currently is experiencing mental health concerns.

    To apply, please share a 300-word essay describing your personal/loved one’s journey and how you want to use these experiences to positively impact the lives of others battling mental illness.
