About Mental Health Matters in Illinois Schools 2023

It takes a village and we are all the village. Let's make mental health literacy available to every school in the state of Illinois for a full school year, starting October 2023-June 2024

Impactful Fund in partnership with Impactful and Mental Health Association of Greater Chicago has partnered to provide free mental health education for all schools in Illinois for a full school year, starting October 2023.

We are raising $250,000 to make this program free for all. That's $0.09 per student for the year and that includes their family. $50 pays for 556 students and $100 pays for 1,111 students to access the program. Every dollar helps many!

We've got to work together to make real change. We invite you to join us to:
  • Help underwrite the cost to deliver the Creative Coping Toolkit (CCT) a film and evidence-based program with activities that teach how to identify if something is going on and reach out for help. It also teaches resilience, kindness, and social-emotional learning to students, their families, and educators. 
  • Sponsor year-round access to the Creative Coping Toolkit (CCT) and MHAGC's curriculum that comes with engagement and measuring impact. It is COPPA, SOPA and FERPA compliant. Our schools and underserved communities, all need mental health education and services. 

Thank you for your interest and support. We can do this! 

Warm regards,
