OSU Newark students award grant to MHALC

NEWARK – Students of the Cultures of Professional Writing English class at Ohio State University Newark recently awarded a $250 grant to Mental Health America of Licking County in support of the Compeer program.

Students practice real-world writing skills by submitting grant proposals for local non-profit organizations. The proposals compete for actual funding, underwritten by instructor Elizabeth Weiser. Chelsea Olms wrote the winning grant proposal.

The Compeer program is focused on reducing the isolation and stigma for individuals who experience mental illness with a commitment to enhancing mental health recovery and holistic wellness. This is done through an increase in community reintegration and inclusion through friendship, meaningful involvement and service.
