Combatting a Mental Health Epidemic: Launching The Upswing Fund For Adolescent Mental Health

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a devastating impact on youth and adolescents across the country, especially for adolescents who are of color and/or LGBTQ+.

The Upswing Fund for Adolescent Mental Health is a collaborative fund focusing on the mental health and well-being of adolescents in the United States who are of color and/or LGBTQ+. The Fund will help increase capacity of mental health providers, enable the procurement of innovative digital technology solutions, and support system-enabling organizations. You can view a video here from our October 20 launch event to learn more about our approach, hear from stakeholders on the need and solutions, and learn how to get involved.
