Stephan D. Weiss Student Mental Health Award
The American College Health Foundation’s Stephan D. Weiss, PhD, Mental Health Fund for Higher Education was established in December 2010, to support efforts to promote and improve the quality of mental health care to college students. With growing national concerns regarding the prevalence and complexity of mental and behavioral health issues among college students and the negative impact these disorders have on the health and safety of higher education communities, student retention, student learning/academic progress, and the human potential of students, the Weiss Fund is providing support for an award to be available annually.
This award is sponsored by the Stephan D. Weiss Foundation and the Weiss Fund of the American College Health Foundation. It offers a $2500 award to promote and improve the quality of mental health support for college students. The Weiss Award is intended to encourage the development of creative initiatives that will enhance mental health service delivery to students through an innovative program which could be replicated at other colleges or universities. This award will support program development that can demonstrate measurable success in student retention for those whose mental health problems might otherwise compromise the quality of their college experience and jeopardize the likelihood of their graduation.
Funding for the Weiss Award will be available annually to applicants enrolled at ACHA Member Institutions.
