Mental health issues are among the most common health issues affecting individuals and families today. 

Mental illness and addiction are each challenging battles on their own, but they often go hand in hand. Roughly 50% of individuals with severe mental disorders are also affected by substance abuse. To help people through their illnesses or addiction, it’s critical that the next generation of mental health professionals are educated and empowered to help individuals in their battle to overcome their illnesses.

The Fishers of Men-tal Health Scholarship aims to honor the memory of Dmitriy Kapelkin, a beloved brother, son and friend who loved fishing, Jesus and helping those in need. 

Any high school senior, undergraduate, or graduate student who is planning on pursuing a career in the mental health field may apply for this scholarship.

To apply, tell us how your experience with mental health has impacted your beliefs, relationships, and career goals.

"Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men." Matthew 4:19
