Typical or Troubled? School Mental Health Education Program Grants Available

Typical or Troubled? TM is a school community program designed to educate teachers and other school staff, and parents on: the warning signs of emotional and behavioral health issues; how to talk to students who may be experiencing problems and engage family members: and help connect students to appropriate resources within the school or community. To date, the program has been implemented in 35 states, over 500 schools and districts, and connected with over 510,000 students.

The program has resulted in critical interventions with student in need, ignited positive dialogue and collaboration among the school community, and resulted in establishing or improving referral systems and connections to services within the schools.


Grant awards include: a grant of $1,000 or $2,000 depending on the number of schools, innovative educational materials, brochures, evaluation tools, technical assistance, and connections with many of your colleagues across the nation.

SPANISH and ENGLISH versions

In addition to the standard Typical or Troubled? TM program, the Foundation offers a culturally competent adolescent mental health education program designed for parents and staff in predominately Hispanic school communities. The program was developed with Hispanic families and students, teachers, school administrators, counselors, school social workers, psychologists, psychiatrists, and community organizations. The result: a variety of educational tools - presentations, scripted notes, facts and figures, role playing exercises, handouts and brochures - that encourage learning and dialogue with parents about their teen's mental health and how to support their mental health and emotional well-being.


A conference call to answer questions and discuss the application process and key criteria for successful applications is scheduled for March 4, 2013 - at 3:00 pm (Eastern Time)
Dial in number: 1-218-339-3600 code: 724620
