COVID-19 Response Fund: Supporting Youth Mental Health

Sand Hill Foundation is driven by optimism about the resilience and hopefulness of the human spirit. This remains true now more than ever, as our community navigates the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. As schools remain closed and in-person services cancelled, the collective mental health of our community is tested daily. In response, our grantmaking will focus on increasing access to culturally-responsive and supportive mental health services for young people during this unprecedented time.

COVID-19 Response Fund: Supporting Youth Mental Health

Based on recent input from community members and those on the front lines of service in the mental health field, Sand Hill Foundation is expanding its support for the delivery of direct mental health services to young people and their families to help mitigate the traumatic effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.

This represents a focus shift for our 2020 mental health funding strategy from a systems-building strategy to direct service, recognizing that this unprecedented moment requires an additional call to action.

Criteria & Eligibility

Grant funding is expected to result in the timely, culturally-responsive, and secure delivery of supportive direct mental health services, including but not limited to online treatment, telehealth or text-based services, individual, group, and/or guided peer counseling to young people (ages 11-24 years old) in San Mateo and northern Santa Clara counties.
