FY 2022 Grants

Demonstrating Policy Effectiveness to Promote Black Youth Mental Health

Grant period: 2022-2025

This three-year initiative will help identify health and wellness policies that are successful in improving Black youth mental health (BYMH), including suicide prevention.

Awardees are expected to use a policy assessment framework to identify existing policies that they expect to promote mental health in Black youth. Awardees subsequently will test the impact of these policies on Black youth mental health in varied settings, such as schools, faith-based organizations, community centers, health centers, or other community agency settings.

The project period for the grant is September 30, 2022 – September 29, 2025
