Thanks to the generous contributions of a group of dedicated and caring mental health advocates, we are pleased to announce that funding has been secured to support a limited number of consumer scholarships to the 2012 National Zarrow Mental Health Symposium and Mental Health America Annual Conference.
Scholarships are reserved for individuals living in recovery from mental illness and/or substance use (consumers). In order for your application to be considered, a short letter of recommendation from a mental health advocacy organization or treatment provider must be submitted with your application.

Scholarships are awarded to the individual and are non-transferable. If you are selected to receive a scholarship and are not able to attend we request that you please notify the Mental Health Association in Tulsa no later than Friday, September 14th so that we have the opportunity to provide the scholarship to another deserving applicant.
