The mini grant program is a “packaged” version of our suicide prevention and mental health curriculum delivered in the form of an Annual Film Contest. Participating groups apply for this program and receive educational resources about mental health and suicide prevention plus personalized support for filmmaking. Students in the mini grant program apply lessons from the Youth Creating Change curriculum to create their own mental health and/or suicide prevention film projects. Mini grant teams also plan and host a youth-led awareness event tied to either mental health, suicide prevention, or both, at which their films are screened. Through participation in the mini grant program and use of the curriculum, groups receive funding that can be used to support filmmaking, their awareness event, or other activities that support youth wellness.
