The Boulder County Community Services Department is accepting applications to the Mental Health Awareness Training grant program. This grant is part of the greater ARPA mental health and social resilience project to support more equitable access to mental and behavioral health needs.
Funding is available for agencies and individuals who offer mental health trainings and programs. This grant program – supported with American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds – is reserved for community agencies or individuals that are looking to provide innovative approaches to mental health trainings. The goal is to provide culturally responsive trainings to empower Boulder County communities by responding effectively to people of all cultures, languages, disabilities, races, and ethnic backgrounds, among other diversity factors.

- Suicide prevention training for service providers and/or community and family members who may be experiencing mental health needs.
- Outreach and marketing efforts to talk about mental health issues, recognize related risk and protective factors and identify community resources.
- Provide training to community/service providers about strength-based approaches to leverage the strengths in our communities around understanding and intervening in mental health needs.
- Provide awareness training about mental health issues that are designed to reduce the fear and stigma associated with community or family members experiencing mental health struggles.
