Advancing mental health awareness and support among students through scholarships and internships

About the Contest

We invite you to participate in our scholarship/internship contest aimed at fostering partnerships with educational institutions. The goal is to engage students in mental health awareness and provide students in need with free mental health support and resources.

Five selected contest winners will receive a scholarship or paid internship, where they will collaborate with our team to implement their proposal. At least one prize will be reserved for a participant living in a California county designated as a mental health professional shortage region by HRSA.
