The Quell Foundation Writing Scholarship
The Quell Foundation Writing Scholarship ($1,000) was offered as part of the 2019 Texas Mental Health Creative Arts Contest, distributed to the writing category winner who was enrolled in the 2019–2020 collegiate academic year.
The Quell Foundation strives to reduce the number of suicides, overdoses and incarcerations of people with mental health illness. They work to accomplish this by encouraging people to share their stories, increasing access to mental health services, providing a pipeline of future mental health care professionals with scholarships, and training first responders to recognize mental health crisis warning signs amongst their own.
