By Lauren Phillips, for the Campus Mental Health Strategy
Applications for the second cycle of Campus Mental Health Strategy (CMHS) grants are now open, and we’re asking you for your big ideas.
For many, funding can be the biggest barrier to pursuing ideas that make campus a better place. Launched in 2017, the CMHS grant program offers annual grants of up to $10,000, empowering students, faculty, staff and postdoctoral scholars to play a larger role in developing initiatives that foster positive mental health and wellness.
Open to the entire campus community, individuals or groups, including student clubs, wellness committees and colleagues, are encouraged to apply. Through the application process, applicants must demonstrate how their proposed project will improve mental health and well-being on campus, and specifically, how it satisfies at least one of the 28 recommendations of the strategy.
