Grant opportunity for youth suicide prevention

TOPEKA — Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt and the Tower Mental Health Foundation announced last week they are soliciting grant applications for projects and activities that support mental health services in Kansas.

Grants totaling approximately $65,000 will be awarded by the Foundation. Applications are available on the attorney general’s website at Completed applications must be received by Aug. 2.

The criteria for this year’s grants include programs that promote or provide collaborative, community-wide efforts to raise awareness and education on youth and young adult (ages 0-24) suicide prevention, response and intervention. In addition, the programs must achieve broad community engagement across a cross section of the community in which youth and young adults are involved. The strategies, techniques and materials created with grant funds must be able to be replicated and will be shared with the broader community.
