Dr. Jake Goodman and Zachery Dereniowski, two passionate mental health activists, started the Mental Health Movement (MHM) in October of 2020 in the hopes of de-stigmatizing conversations concerning mental health. Both co-founders are personally connected to the mission, “You Matter Most”, as they have seen friends lose their lives to mental illness.

Last year, with Covid forcing everyone to socially isolate, Jake and Zach took to social media to help people feel more connected and provide others with proof that they are not alone when it comes to their mental health. MHM is driven to give those battling with mental health a voice to be heard and know that whatever they are going through, they will persevere.

This summer, the duo connected with one of their favorite medical study companies, Picmonic, to create the MHM x Picmonic Scholarship. Picmonic knows your life is busy. They get it. That’s why they created a mnemonic learning system for medical students. It's built to save you time when studying, boost your test scores, and get your life back as a student. Picmonic has agreed to donate $2,000 to the scholarship in hopes of motivating those who have experienced a mental illness to keep fighting and pursue their educational dreams.

To apply, please share a 300-word essay describing your personal or loved one’s journey and how you want to use these experiences to positively impact the lives of others battling mental illness.
