The Lynn Keltz Scholarship has been established to assist people age 30 and under to access training and educational opportunities that will contribute to their mental health advocacy skills.
We use the term ‘advocacy’ to include advocacy on public policy affecting mental health and wellness whether at local, state or federal policy levels.
Advocacy has long been in the mission of Pennsylvania Mental Health Consumers’ Association (PMHCA). Through this scholarship, we intend to engage members who will continue this legacy.
We envision the leadership of young advocates who will help to articulate and shape recovery oriented public mental health policy that better meets the needs of children, young adults and families. A component of this leadership is the expectation that all recipients will further the education and awareness gained through acquired training to shape the future of mental health policy, supports and services within these communities and beyond.
All applicants must be PMHCA members at the time of application submission.
Donations to this scholarship fund will help sustain advocacy for recovery oriented mental health into the future.
