The Northeastern Ohio Universities Colleges of Medicine and Pharmacy received a $5 million grant from the Margaret Clark Morgan Foundation. This grant is being used to help improve treatments and knowledge surrounding schizophrenia. The BeST (Better Practices in Schizophrenia Treatment) Center will also receive money from this grant for its continued development “to improve and enhance the treatment of the mental disorders” reports the Kent News Network.
While many mental health organizations have been hurting during the economic downturn, Rick Keller, president of the Margaret Clark Morgan Foundation said, “But we also have a mission to achieve ¬- it said a lot about our determination to accomplish our mission”. The BeST Center will use the grant money and continue to develop over the next four years.
