Apply for a Typical or Troubled Grant

ASCA is working with the American Psychiatric Foundation to make the Typical or Troubled? grant program available to school counselors. Established by the American Psychiatric Foundation, a philanthropic and educational subsidiary of the American Psychiatric Association, the grant program provides funding to implement the Typical or Troubled School Mental Health educational model in communities nationwide. Community organizations, high schools and school districts are eligible to receive funding. Typical or Troubled? is an educational program, designed for school personnel to raise their awareness of mental disorders in teens. The program focuses on promoting the importance of early recognition and treatment, recognizing the early warning signs of mental health problems and encouraging action and appropriate referral to a mental health professional. Grant applications (five copies plus the original) must be received at the ASCA office by April 4, 2008.
