The Quell Foundation, a not-for-profit dedicated to reducing the number of suicides, overdoses, and the incarceration of people living with mental health challenges, has reached a major milestone: It has distributed $3.5 million in scholarships and grants to date, the Miami Herald reports.

The foundation has awarded scholarships to more than 1,800 students across all 50 states attending over 500 universities.

The scholarships reach diverse groups, including those living with mental illness, individuals pursuing careers in mental health, and those personally affected by the loss of a loved one to suicide.

"As we celebrate reaching $3.5 million in scholarship distribution, we are committed to our goal of offering assistance and opportunities to individuals facing mental health challenges and to those studying to be our next generation of mental health professionals," the foundation's founder and CEO says in a press release.

"Together, we can make a positive impact and pave the way for a better tomorrow."
