The California Mental Health Services Authority (CalMHSA) -- through its Stigma and Discrimination Reduction (SDR) Initiative -- will award sponsorships to schools in an effort to engage in and expand the reach of Each Mind Matters: California's Mental Health Movement.
If you would like to show everyone that your school promotes welcoming, healthy places to learn and live by becoming an Each Mind Matters Lime Green Ribbon School.

Here's how the process works:

  1. Student-run clubs are eligible to apply for this sponsorship.

  2. These student-run clubs make a commitment to promoting fresh, positive conversations about mental health in California by taking specific actions that reduce stigma and promote wellness, inclusivity, and diversity.

  3. In return, they become eligible for the Lime Green Ribbon School designation and a one-time aware of $500 to help support their efforts.

    Student-run clubs selected as Lime Green Ribbon Schools will receive:

    • Green Ribbon Partner window cling(s) and/or stickers;

    • A free supply of green ribbons for public areas or events;

    • Each Mind Matters swag to show off their commitment to creating mentally healthy places to live and learn;

    • A one-time $500 award (to be used to fund your on-campus event; any remaining funds can be used for club operating expenses).


Interested? Here are three, simple commitments all Lime Green Ribbon Schools make:

  1. Identify at least one student club leader and/or school official to be the Lime Green Ribbon School representative for your school. 
  2. Host at least ONE Mental Health Awareness activity during the month of May. 
  3. Choose at least TWO of your favorite actions from the list provided and have your representative make sure they are implemented:
  4. Be creative and think of your own additional activities that promote wellness and reduce stigma.
