Each school will receive a grant of up to $5,000 for a community mental health service project initiated and managed by medical students under the supervision of medical faculty. The awards are made possible through an unrestricted educational grant from Otsuka America Pharmaceutical, Inc.

The American Psychiatric Foundation, which is dedicated to advancing public understanding that mental illnesses are real and can be effectively treated, approved the following grants:

  • Morehouse School of Medicine, Atlanta, GA, was awarded the grant for the student-driven initiative to educate disadvantaged youth about mental health topics, to offer them alternatives that may foster improved mental health, and to help medical student volunteers to understand the importance of improving mental health in youth.

  • Boston University School of Medicine, Boston, MA, was awarded the grant for the Outreach Van Project, a student-run, non-profit organization which serves the homeless and low income community in East Boston on a weekly basis. The grant will allow the incorporation of mental health services and education for clients and will also offer student volunteers an opportunity
