To coincide with Mental Health Awareness Month, ACM Lifting Lives is amplifying our support. ACM Lifting Lives has a long history of giving back to individuals, organizations, and programs that prioritize physical and mental health. Through the ACM Lifting Lives COVID-19 Response Fund, there was a demonstrated need to increase direct emotional and mental health support as people continue to recover from the effects of the pandemic.
Announced on May 2nd, ACM Lifting Lives will accept grant submissions in mid-May for the following:
- Individuals working in the country music community that are seeking mental health services or programs that promote healing.
- Organizations supporting the mental and emotional health of members of the country music industry by providing direct services.
- Organizations that provide music therapy for health-related causes, both mental and physical.
ACM Lifting Lives is proud to partner with organizations that are also focused on supporting individuals and their mental health. Also announced on May 2nd, ACM Lifting Lives has formalized a partnership with the Music Health Alliance Mental Health Fund and Porter’s Call creating an ACM Lifting Lives benevolence fund for use with country artists needing additional assistance (medically, therapeutically, or simply financially due to hardships).
