Thank you for reaching out and applying to receive assistance from To Write Love on Her Arms. If you’re reading this—it means that you are taking the courageous step toward healing and recovery. Thank you for being brave and believing that your well-being matters. Please note, this application process consists of three steps.

1) The first step is to complete this online application. The application should take less than 15-minutes to complete but you’ll want to gather information like your insurance coverage, the contact information for your counselor or mental health service provider, and have the ability to answer some basic financial questions. Incomplete applications will not be considered for scholarship funding. 

After you submit your completed application we will contact you directly to complete steps 2 and 3. 

2) Provide a release of information with your mental health provider. Due to HIPPA regulations, TWLOHA must be given permission to confirm you will be receiving services and to discuss billing information with your provider. You will receive additional instructions on how to complete this step after you submit your completed application.   

3) Finally, your provider will need to complete a short verification that they meet our scholarship requirements. If you do not have a counselor we encourage you to check out our FIND HELP Tool for a list of providers near you. We are also happy to help you identify options in your area or based on your specific circumstances. You can also opt to participate in our Meru Health Partnership program which is 100% free to participate in. To learn more visit Meru here.  

Before you apply, please know that the typical scholarship awarded is between 3-6 months (12-24 sessions) of counseling. We know that your situation may require additional care but it's our goal to give as many people support as possible. 

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to email us at with the subject line: “[YOUR NAME] - SCHOLARSHIP QUESTION.” All information shared through the application is confidential and only accessible to FIND HELP program team members at TWLOHA.
