Our Programs

We offer Mental Health Access (copay or deductible) Assistance to youth, children, and parents of dependent children (ages 0-25) who live in Lancaster County and have financial need.

We offer scholarships to individuals who are pursuing a career in the mental health field. Students who are starting or continuing advanced degrees and certifications, and are passionate about youth and children’s mental health.

This program addresses the inadequate supply of child and adolescent mental health professionals in Lancaster County. Thanks in part to a generous grant from the Steinman Foundation, this is funded for 3 years (through 2025).

Formerly known as the Pregnancy and Postpartum Mental Health of Lancaster County, our Parent Mental Wellness program raises awareness of perinatal and postpartum depression/anxiety, connects patients to care, eliminates racial disparities in maternal mental healthcare, is inclusive of gender experiences and educates healthcare and mental healthcare providers.

We host a youth summit for high school students, exploring different topics of mental wellness while connecting them to local professionals and artists in Lancaster County.

We are looking to fund programs that have a
mental health focus. Through a formal request for proposal (RFP) and/or interview process we can help to shape projects to meet eligibility requirements.
