Despite living in the most prosperous period of history, millions of people are struggling.

Today, conversations around mental health are unfortunately stigmatized and isolating for the 67 million people across the country who struggle to cope with mental health concerns every day. 

Additionally, those who suffer also have to worry about what others may think of them because of the regrettable stigma around mental health dialogue. 

To normalize conversation and dialogue around mental health, there must be distinct opportunities to support those who have been impacted by mental health struggles toward their largest goals and aspirations. 

As a small solution, Suzie's Mental Health Awareness Scholarship will support one student in any field of study who has battled with mental health, has a loved one who has in the past or currently is experiencing mental health concerns, or is interested in pursuing a field that will support mental healthcare through practice or research (psychiatry, neuroscience, doctor, psychology, etc.).

To apply, please talk about your experience with mental health, how it’s impacted you, and why mental health awareness is important to you.
