Elsa Heisel Sule Foundation awards grant to 1n5 to support its work with youth and mental health

Local non-profit, 1N5, was awarded a $10,000 grant by The Elsa Heisel Sule Foundation to further its mission of promoting optimal mental health through education, awareness, and stigma reduction. Grant funds will go specifically to the Building Resiliency in Youth program, a hands-on, in-school approach that provides mental health screening, analysis, and a customized and comprehensive plan to improve the mental health and mental health knowledge of students and educators.

Since 2010 1N5 has been leading transformational mental health work in Greater Cincinnati. 1N5 partners with local schools and universities to normalize mental health and break down the barriers that prevent students from seeking help. Because every school has its own unique set of circumstances, no two school plans are identical. Long-term strategic plans are created by implementing evidence-based programs that include prevention, intervention, and postvention, all with proper mental health professional support in place for each school.

“We are working to get ahead of the mental health crisis by educating the younger population and the teachers who educate them. Equipping them with the necessary tools paves the way to incite real and meaningful change,” says Nancy Eigel-Miller, Founder and Executive Director of 1N5. “We’re grateful to be awarded this grant by The Elsa Heisel Sule Foundation and proud of our partnership with them.”

1N5 currently partners with 100 schools and 6 universities in the Greater Cincinnati region with a goal to positively impact all schools in the region.

The Elsa Heisel Sule Foundation, a charitable trust founded in 2004, has a rich history of supporting organizations in the Tri-State region. The Foundation is centered on supporting education, the community, and the arts.
