Centering Youth Mental Health Initiative

Through this open call, the CVS Health Foundation is announcing its Centering Youth Mental Health initiative, a multi-year philanthropic investment to improve adolescent and young adult mental health. In response to the continuing decline in mental health outcomes for young people ages 12 to 24, the Foundation intends to collaborate with community-based, multi-sector coalitions that are seeking to create sustainable, systems-level improvements in cities or counties. We believe that lasting change is possible if we create the conditions that foster connections among individuals, families, and organizations.

This five-year initiative will launch in up to four sites across the United States. City- or county-level coalitions will each be awarded a total of $1,000,000 to implement strategies that increase young people’s access to the evidence-based care, programs and conditions that promote positive mental health outcomes.

This initiative aims to bridge care gaps for the most vulnerable adolescent and young adult populations, especially those who:

  • identify as female, BIPOC, and/or LGBTQ+; 
  • live in communities with limited availability of behavioral health care services; and/or
  • are involved in juvenile justice or child welfare systems.

The vision of this initiative is that young people struggling with mental health challenges will receive intervention, treatment, and support services, so that they can enter the next stage of life with optimal well-being.
