The Foundation supports efforts to build communities' capacity to provide mental health care appropriate to the local culture and resources.

Capacity-building initiatives enable a community resource to strengthen or expand its services to bridge gaps in mental health care.



Meet a Recent Grantee


To date, the Foundation’s capacity-building efforts have consisted of funding programs built to increase mental health services and support for underserved communities, such as NBCC International's Mental Health Facilitator (MHF) program and the Foundation’s Veterans Counseling Initiative.

The MHF program has been implemented recently in Bhutan, Malawi, Mozambique, Zambia, Rwanda, Mexico, Tanzania and Uganda as well as the United States.

The Foundation does not currently accept unsolicted proposals or requests for funds.
