Our Partners

Launched in October 2020, The Upswing Fund has worked to expand mental healthcare by awarding $10.8 million in grants across 33 states plus Washington, D.C. These grants will enable organizations – many of which employ less than 50 full-time employees - to immediately increase their capacity to serve more youth in new and innovative ways. Two types of grants were awarded:

  • Surge Capacity grants, which provide immediate resources for direct-service organizations, and
  • Systems Enabler grants, which support project-based work led by organizations supporting innovative approaches in adolescent mental health services that make more resilient systems to enable access to care.
