THE MCW SCHOLARSHIP - What is it?

With each round of scholarships, one young woman stands out amongst the rest to be awarded the Mary Cathryn White Scholarship. This scholar meets all requirements for general JCRF scholarships, but also is from the Tennessee or Mid-South area and has overcome suicidal ideations or attempt.

This scholarship is given in honor and memory of a shining young lady by the name of Mary Cathryn White. The goal of this scholarship is to encourage and empower students to keep fighting, never give up, and live their next chapter.

Follow along on Facebook and Instagram as we take on Su***de Prevention Month and tell the story of Mary Cathryn and how you can make a difference every day.

The upmost goal we face is giving students the chance to live their next chapter. A students story of mental health recovery is more than just their medical history, it’s a book that is not even close to its last page.

With JCRF, students are given scholarships and support to give them the pen to write their next chapter and live it to the fullest!

Your support inspires students, gives them the financial support they need for college, and takes a step in tearing down the walls of stigmas built around mental health. Together, we can do this.

I asked Kristi a question and recieved a response I had to share...

Me: Kristi, if you could tell your younger self or a stranger anything, what would you say?

Kristi: You do not have to feel hope in order for it to exist. Hope is alive and hope is never-ending. And now, with so much pride, I can say that the JC Runyon Foundation is a piece of my hope.

Kristi is a JC Runyon Scholarship recipient and we couldn't be more proud of her journey, her determination, and her drive! She is a supporter, a friend, and a wonderful mom to an adorable pup.

Kristi, thank you for being a part of the JCRF family!

The National Su***de Hotline: call 800-273-8255

This hotline can remain anonymous if you choose, it’s is open 24/7 all days of the year, and is ready to talk.

If you are in need of a more personal connection, reach out to someone you trust such as a family member, a close friend, a teacher, or a leader in your life. You are never alone. You can even DM us if you are struggling and need help finding connections.

Reaching out for help can be scary, uncomfortable, and sometimes even feel impossible. It’s common to feel like asking for help makes you a burden, but you need to know it is the exact opposite. You are loved and those around you who care want to help you find the help you need.

Keep fighting. You still have so many chapters to live, all you need to do is take that step.

Mental health: let’s talk about it.

💫 1 in 5 adults (18 years or older) in the USA are diagnosed with a mental illness
💫 so what does this mean? It means you are not alone. 20% of American adults are fighting right alongside you.
💫 JCRF is right there with you. Our goal is to create a community of awareness, support, and knowledge.

Tune in tomorrow to see how you can support this mission! For now, get some rest, take care of yourself, take a deep breath, and keep fighting, soldier.

We are here for you.

#LiveYourNextChapter

We recognize the financial burden in-patient psychiatric treatment can create in families. We also believe in the power of the hard work a patient has endured to successfully complete high school and be admitted to college. We understand that there are few scholarship opportunities when there are "holes" in the educational transcript and we don’t think any family should have to stop moving forward because of money. Our scholarship is not just a check. We are a family and we work with each student to get to graduation.

.....because treatment is not the end of your story, only a chapter. Are you ready to #LiveYourNextChapter?
