Individuals must submit a one page (500-word maximum) essay explaining the special circumstances or extreme challenges you or your family have experienced as the caregiver of someone suffering from mental illness. Tell us how you met this challenge in your daily life. Please be sure to include what advice you would give other students in a similar situation and/or people/organizations that have helped you or your family cope. How has this experience shaped you? Has this affected what you choose to pursue in college/trade school?
We did it! Thank you everyone for participating in our walks for mental health! Last weekend AMCF joined five walks throughout the country in honor of May's Mental Health Awareness Month. In total, we have joined NINE walks this year and raised $4,348. The money raised will directly underwrite financial relief grants to caregivers who have loved ones struggling with mental or emotional health issues.
