The success of our Youth Mental Health First Aid program was made possible because of the remarkable generosity of the funding collaborative, which includes:
AEGON Transamerica Foundation
The Applestone Foundation
Coatesville Community Health Foundation, a fund of the Chester County Community Foundation
The County of Chester, Department of Human Services
The Dansko Foundation
Genuardi Family Foundation
The Gunard Berry Carlson Memorial Foundation Inc.
Philadelphia Health Partnership
The Rotary Club of Coatesville
Mr. Samuel Slater and Ms. Eleanor H. Forbes
Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration
The Thomas Scattergood Behavioral Health Foundation
United Way of Chester County and
van Ameringen Foundation Inc.
Further enhancing our privately funded efforts, the CASD is just one of four Pennsylvania school districts among 119 state and local educational agencies that is part of a major national initiative to support teachers, schools, and communities in recognizing and responding to mental health concerns among youth through the MHFA program. The CASD is receiving a $100,000 grant over two years from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration to support the implementation of YMHFA, here in the greater Coatesville community.
