Adam T. Hallberg was a beloved brother who tragically died by suicide in 2008. Adam was a wonderful young man. He was handsome and loved sports and his family. He attended the University of Iowa and was a loyal member of his fraternity. He had many people who loved and admired him.
Adam wasn’t able to get the care that he needed in order to effectively treat his mental illness. Sadly, Adam’s experience is a common one, as many people who struggle with their mental health don’t seek help due to the inaccessibility of treatment, the costs of support, and/or the stigmatization of mental illness.
This scholarship aims to honor the memory of Adam T. Hallberg by supporting students who are pursuing higher education in the mental health field.
