Adolescents who are of color and/or LGBTQ+ face significant barriers to accessing mental healthcare and services. The Upswing Fund for Adolescent Mental Health was created to address this need by providing resources to organizations serving these populations.
The Upswing Fund aims to support a more integrated and higher quality adolescent mental health system for adolescents who are of color and/or LGBTQ+ by providing direct resources to organizations serving these populations in two ways:
-First, through Surge Capacity grants providing immediate funding to direct-service organizations that provide mental healthcare to adolescents, and
-Second, through Systems Enabler grants providing resources to organizations to support innovative approaches in adolescent mental health services that make more resilient systems to enable access to care.
The Upswing Fund is seeded by Pivotal Ventures, an investment and incubation company created by Melinda French Gates to advance social progress in the United States. Further support is provided by the Klarman Family Foundation. The Fund is advised by a renowned set of mental health experts with deep clinical and research expertise and a passion to support youth and communities. The Upswing Fund is powered by Panorama, a platform for social change dedicated to solving global problems through audacious thinking and bold action.
