Student Mental Health Emergency Funds are Back

The Student Mental Health Emergency Fund program is back for the spring semester and will continue through the 2024-2025 academic year, as funds are available. SUNY Administration awarded SUNY Brockport nearly $48,000 to support students struggling with mental health conditions that places a financial burden on them.

Mental Health Emergency Funds are grants of up to $500 awarded to eligible students who are experiencing an unforeseen hardship or crisis that has impacted their mental and emotional well-being. The grants must be used solely for mental health services including therapy visits, psychiatric medications, transportation to and from therapy visits, and for other basic needs. Students must be registered and attending the semester in which they apply and must fulfill all requirements outlined in the online application.

This initiative is a partnership between the Division of Student Affairs and the Division of Advancement and Communications.

We encourage faculty and staff to share the information with your students by posting on your department’s student listserv and announcing in class, etc. Students can access the webpage to learn more about the emergency funds and submit an application.
