2023 Mental Health Competitive Grant Opportunity

Arizona, like the rest of the U.S., has seen an increase in anxiety, depression, and suicide rates — much of that increase attributed to the stressors brought on by COVID-19.

Mental health has always mattered. Listening to the news, looking at the statistics, we know it matters now more than ever.

30.7% of adults in Arizona reported symptoms of anxiety disorder and 25.6% reported symptoms of depression in a June 2022 Centers for Disease Control survey. Arizona ranks 38th in the U.S. for lives lost to suicide and, in 2021, the number and rate of suicide increased after leveling off from 2018-2020.

The Blue Cross® Blue Shield® of Arizona Foundation for Community & Health Advancement is taking action.

We’ve made mental health our flagship focus area. Through grants for programs and applied research, the Foundation collaborates with community partners to expand resources and access, reduce stigma, and connect people to care.

Our 2023 mental health competitive grant opportunity opens February 6. Join our bidders conference on February 13, 2023 for all the application details and to ask questions. We’ll also share what we look for in applications and tips on standing out in a competitive field.
