Special Grant Announcement

In a joint event to be held at Northeast Ohio Medical University, mental health funder and partner, Peg’s Foundation, will present a multimillion dollar grant to the Department of Psychiatry in the College of Medicine.

The grant will help the department and its three centers of excellence ― Best Practices in Schizophrenia Treatment (BeST) Center, Ohio Program for Campus Safety and Mental Health (OPCSMH) and the Criminal Justice Coordinating Center of Excellence (CJ CCoE) ― to increase dramatically the dissemination of evidence-based treatments to improve the lives of people with mental illnesses. These treatments may also prevent or reduce incarceration, homelessness, suicide and violent acts that can result from untreated serious mental illnesses.
