Mental Health America of Northern Kentucky and Southwest Ohio has been awarded a $1.25 million grant from OhioMHAS to fund a collaborative to develop a sustainable, statewide strategy to focus on the efficient delivery of Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) for Adolescents and Transition-Age Youth, Mental Health First Aid for Older Adults, Mental Health First Aid for Minority Populations, and Mental Health First Aid for Faith and Spiritual Communities.
The non-profit collaborative created to implement the grant also includes:
Miami University’s Center for School-Based Mental Health Programs and the University’s Discovery Center for Evaluation, Research, and Professional Learning; Mental Health America of Ohio; the Ohio Mental Health Network for School Success; as well as support from regional and national MHFA experts.
