In the wake of the life-changing events of October 24th at Central Visual and Performing Arts High School coupled with our ongoing emergence from the recent pandemic, broad-range behavioral health needs have heightened to new levels.
United Way of Greater St. Louis has launched the Mental Health Collaborative Fund to assist in supporting broadened investments, initiatives, impacts and outcomes in mental health in support of efforts led by clinical providers and partners addressing related traumas, including widespread violence, domestic abuse and more.
By quickly learning from and benchmarking with other communities impacted by school-based shootings, uniquely related traumas, and long-term stressors, this fund will support expanded resources in three ways:
Access to Behavioral Health Supports:
Community Engagement Mini-Grants:
Expansion of Mental Health First Aid Training and Community-Wide Best Practices:
United Way of Greater St. Louis will launch this fund with a total of $150,000. We invite other contributions by clicking the link below:
