NEOMED gets a $7.5 Million Grant to Integrate Psychiatric Education
It’s believed to be the largest single grant ever given specifically for mental health treatment studies by a private foundation in Ohio.
NEOMED Psychiatry Chair Dr. Mark Munetzthe says the money will go toward the department’s centers of excellence: Best Practices in Schizophrenia; Campus Safety & Mental Health; and Criminal Justice Coordinating.
“Previously the foundation had supported our Best Center, and to a lesser degree the other two centers, which we realized was really siloing what were complicated problems that had a lot of overlap.
The grant announced Thursday brings Peg’s Foundation’s support of NEOMED to $20.5 million in the past 12 years.
