We are currently assisting several families on their journey to residential treatment, resulting in our funds being fully committed. Unfortunately, this means we are unable to accept new applications at this time. If you have the ability to donate and would like to give the gift of hope and healing to others, you can do so here. If you have questions about navigating the treatment process, our team is happy to help and encourages you to still reach out to us.

  • How do you decide who gets a grant?
    Grants are given based on a combined assessment of financial need, mental health acuity, and motivation to complete treatment. MHI completes a short interview with each potential awardee to further asses prior to awarding funds.
  • I applied for a grant and did not receive it. Are there other resources I could try?
    We truly wish we could give everyone a grant! We understand that since that is not possible, other options are a must. Please visit our resource page for additional options for support.
  • If I receive a grant through Mental Health Initiative, does the money go directly to me?
    Mental Health Initiative will work directly with your chosen treatment center and pay them directly.
  • I want to apply but the application is not open. When will it be open again?
    Our applications open as soon as we have the funding needed to provide grants. Please continue to check back as we aim to open them as frequently as possible. In order to stay up to date, subscribe to our mailing list as we will share when they re-open there!
