We offer funding, connection to high-quality providers, and 1:1 support as you navigate treatment.


Financial Assistance

Our grants cover the cost of mental health services for individuals struggling to afford high-quality mental health care.

Our grants are structured similarly to a scholarship. Once an individual in need or their guardian applies through our online application, we review each application and individualize each grant based on financial need, diagnostic assessment, and expected duration of treatment. We are diligent throughout this process to ensure the best possible care for our Clients.


FH Provider Network

Upon approval of a grant, we connect 1:1 with our new Client to better understand their mental health state and individual needs. We then connect them to the best fit Provider(s) within our FH Provider Network.


Care Coordination

Our Care Team offers 1:1 support to our Clients along their mental health journey.

We recognize mental health is not a one size fits all. To ensure the efficacy of our Client’s treatment, our Care Coordinator and our Clinical Lead collaborate to offer personalized support to each Client as they progress through our program.

Support FAQ

Support applications are currently open to those living in the Greater San Diego Area, although we plan to expand services in the near future.

We will have no eligibility restrictions around age or level of employment, as we believe all people dealing with a mental health condition are deserving of proper care.

As a part of our application process, we ask candidates to complete a statement of financial need, including financial resources and considerations impacting your ability to access treatment. We do not currently have any income caps to apply, and assess each application on a case-by-case basis.

FundaMental Health grants go directly towards services and treatments from FundaMental Health’s network of providers. On a case-by-case basis we can also cover other out-of-pocket costs associated to treatment including deductibles, co-pays, prescriptions, short-term childcare and pet care, and travel to/from treatment.

Applications are submitted online or by phone, and will be reviewed by our staff, including the CEO and members of the Board of Directors, who will then decide which applicants will receive a mental health grant. We will also conduct an in-person or over-the-phone interview prior to awarding a grant. Our goal is to help as many people as we can, but based on limited resources, we cannot accept every application we receive.

We do our best to review and respond to applications within two weeks of submission. If accepted, a grant recipient may begin treatment as soon as they are connected to a provider within our network. This connection typically happens after a diagnostic assessment of the grant recipient.

In some cases, a grant recipient may already have a mental health provider they would like to work with. If so, the FundaMental Health team will conduct due diligence on the preferred provider to ensure they meet and adhere to our high standards of care.
