Call for Applications: American Psychiatric Foundation Typical or Troubled? Grant Program
The Typical or Troubled? School Mental Health Education Program was developed by the American Psychiatric Foundation to address the important role adults can have in a teen's life and the importance of early identification. By encouraging and equipping adults (such as parents and teachers) who closely interact with adolescents to notice the warning signs of mental health problems, to be prepared with intervention strategies, and to know where to refer teens for help in addressing these issues, the program becomes an essential element in ensuring student health and safety.
At its core, Typical or Troubled? is an evidence-based program that has been successfully working with school communities as a companion program with existing school safety and physical health programs across the nation to improve student mental health through early recognition, intervention, and treatment. To date, the curriculum has been presented in nearly 2,000 schools nationwide in urban, suburban, and rural school communities.
The Foundation is now accepting applications from community organizations, schools, and school districts to apply to implement the Typical or Troubled? program in middle and high schools. Those who have already implemented Typical or Troubled? may apply for the Innovations Grant.
