Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina Foundation is issuing a funding opportunity to expand access to youth mental and behavioral health services supporting near-term opportunities which leverage a trained workforce that goes beyond specialty trained clinical and professional roles and which provides initial support and connection to resources that can assist youth in getting the support they need.

Grants ranging from $75,000 to $500,000 per year for up to three years will support models that are effective in the short-term (1-3 years) in supporting better access to care and resources for youth navigating mental and behavioral health challenges, as well as increasing accessibility to services that can lead to greater prevention and earlier intervention.
