The purpose of this program is to provide resources to enhance the capacity of statewide mental health family-controlled organizations to engage with family members/primary caregivers who are raising children, youth, and young adults with serious emotional disturbance (SED). Grant recipients are expected to be family-driven, trauma-informed, culturally relevant, holistic, and resiliency-oriented family-controlled organizations. SAMHSA expects this program to serve as a catalyst for transforming mental health and related systems in states by strengthening coalitions led by family organizations, and between family members, policy makers, and service providers.
SAMHSA plans to issue up to 13 awards of up to $120,000 per year for up to 3 years.
