THEME 2020: BULLYING PREVENTION, INTERVENTION AND MENTAL HEALTH

Bullying and mental health impacts related to bullying continue to be a tragic trend for our students and youth in Santa Fe County. Loss of self-esteem, self-harm and other detrimental outcomes of bullying are critical challenges we need to address for the well-being of our children and their families. Programs focused on prevention, education, intervention and remediation support for bullying (e.g. early childhood, preK-12) are invited to submit a Letter of Intent (LOI). Programs need to address one or more of the following objectives:

  • Physical and verbal bullying awareness, prevention, intervention and remediation;
  • Cyber-bullying awareness, prevention, intervention and remediation;
  • Classroom bullying awareness, prevention, intervention and remediation; and
  • Behavioral support for mental health issues contributing to, or resulting from bullying, addressing child's needs and encouraging family awareness and support.

A Letter Of Intent (1-2 pages) from non-profits organizations seeking consideration must include the following:

  • Confirm 501(c)3 status or Fiscal Sponsorship;
  • Organization’s Mission Statement;
  • Describe need and children/youth requiring services (age-range, gender, etc.);
  • Data on the number of children served by your organization annually in Santa Fe County;
  • Describe program to prevent, identify, intervene, and/or remediate bullying and its impact on mental health. Provide any data related to your program; and
