Grants of up to $5,000 to USA medical schools for projects addressing substance abuse and mental health disorders. Funding is intended to support community programs initiated and led by medical students with a particular focus on disadvantaged minority populations. Activities may be conducted in partnership with community agencies, or in conjunction with ongoing medical school outreach activities.
Since 2005, The Helping Hands Grants Program has helped psychiatry students meet these needs in their own communities. The program was established to encourage medical students to participate in community service activities, particularly those focused on under-served populations; raise awareness of mental illness and the importance of early recognition of illness; and build an interest among medical students in the psychiatric field and working in under-served communities. These projects can be conducted in partnership with community agencies or in conjunction with ongoing medical school outreach activities, and must be supervised by at least one psychiatrist.
