Request a Grant Writer

Grants and in-kind support to USA nonprofit organizations to develop and implement initiatives to improve mental health care for children and youth throughout the country. Funding is intended for local, regional, or national projects addressing specific issues and unmet needs. The Alliance is especially interested in projects that show feasibility of replicating or scaling the service to benefit children and youth in broader communities.

The Morgan Stanley Alliance for Children's Mental Health Innovation Awards initiative aims to identify and fund mental healthcare solutions for children and young adults across the United States. This program specifically addresses the lack of both private and public investment in children’s mental health and of effective ways to connect innovative ideas with capital. The resulting systemic funding gap has only increased with the deepening crisis in children’s mental health due to COVID-19 and ongoing social injustice issues.

The Alliance is looking for new or piloted projects from direct-service organizations that will help address the far-reaching challenge of stress, anxiety, depression, or other mental health issues in children and young adults on a national or local level in the U.S. Projects must tackle specific issues and address unmet needs, with a goal of reducing stigma, increasing access to care, improving equity in mental health, enabling early identification/prevention or enhancing intervention, especially among disadvantaged and vulnerable populations.
