Schizophrenia treatment center given multi-year, $5.5 million grant
May 31, 2013
Mental heath is a concern for millions of Americans, whether or not they suffer from disorders or are involved with the numerous nonprofit organizations that seek to find cures. An Ohio healthcare center was recently the recipient of a grant from a foundation that has been striving to improve treatment options for a number of years.
The Margaret Clark Morgan Foundation announced it would be awarding the Best Practices in Schizophrenia Treatment (BeST) Center at Northeast Ohio Medical University a four-year long, $5.5 million grant.
"Our grant will enable the BeST Center to continue to work with mental health consumers, family members, policy makers and partner organizations to offer training, consultation, evaluation, education and outreach activities leading to state-of-the-art care for people affected by schizophrenia and their families," explained foundation President Rick Kellar.
The Margaret Clark Morgan Foundation has been very involved in the BeST Center for a number of years. This latest award brings the group's total contributions to nearly $13 million. The medical care facility was created to liaise with other groups in order to bring the best care to Schizophrenics in surrounding communities.
The Margaret Clark Morgan Foundation was formed in Ohio in 2001 with the aim to better the lives of citizens of Northeast Ohio living with mental disorders.
Foundations and organizations that provide annual funding might benefit from nonprofit accounting software, which can help board members audit funds and make sure the correct amounts are being distributed to various programs each year.
