Grant Given to Help 6th, 9th Graders with Mental Disorders

A long-running Mental Wellness Center program to help 6th and 9th graders identify and cope with mental disorders in themselves and family members recently received a $15,000 grant to chart student progress in dozens of classrooms along the South Coast. The program teaches the basics of mental wellness, how to recognize disorder symptoms, and where to find treatment and, through empathy, seeks to destigmatize mental illness. The grant was provided by Alkermes, an Ireland-headquartered biopharmaceutical company specializing in diseases of the central nervous system.
