Kickoff of fundraising campaign for STAND

November 8, 2018

On November 8, 2018, UCLA kicked off a crowdfunding campaign in support of the Depression Grand Challenge’s Screening and Treatment for Anxiety and Depression (STAND) program.  The campaign is active through January 1, 2019 and has a goal of raising $25,000. STAND provides free and accessible mental health resources for all registered UCLA students to assess whether they are experiencing symptoms of anxiety and/or depression and offers immediate treatment options best fit for individual needs.

Donations received via the crowdfunding campaign will make a measurable difference in the lives of UCLA students.  The platform offers tiered giving options.
