As Bebe Moore Campbell National Minority Mental Health Awareness Month begins, the American Psychiatric Association (APA) Division of Diversity and Health Equity and APA Foundation (APAF) today are highlighting the first class of APAF Moore Equity in Mental Health Community Grants Program grantees. Five grant recipients are working to support mental health equity for young people of color, including:
Each recipient was awarded a grant up to $10,000 over two years. The grants were funded by the APA Moore Equity in Mental Health 5K, which saw its inaugural run last year.
“The APA Foundation is honored to support the efforts of these trailblazing organizations and their innovative projects as they work to get the word out on mental health in communities that have been traditionally unserved or underserved,” said APAF Executive Director Rawle Andrews, Esq. "These grantees will make a tangible difference in countless young peoples’ lives.”
