Hope and Grace Fund Grant Awarded to ADAA

hopeandgrace_logo_lockup_isolated2_0.jpgADAA is delighted to announce that we have received a grant from the hope & grace fund, a project of New Venture Fund in partnership with philosophy, inc.” The grant allows ADAA to launch an exciting new initiative “Turning a Laser-Focus on Women’s Issues in the Treatment of Anxiety, Depression and Related Disorders.” 

Through this new project, ADAA will form a Women’s Special Interest Group to design women-focused programming for mental health professionals. It will also develop programming for its 2018 annual conference that focuses on evidence-based gender research and treatment options for women. Finally, ADAA will create women-focused webinars and outreach to educate the public about mental health treatment options for women and to decrease the stigma of mental illness. This project will educate at least 100 clinical researchers and clinicians on female-focused mental health research and treatment trends, while also disseminating educational information about mental health to more than a million women of all ages. Through this initiative, ADAA will reduce the stigma of mental illness, connect women to specialized treatment, and foster dialogue between women’s mental health researchers, clinicians, patients, and the public at large. Interested in learning more about how can become involved in this exciting new project? Please contact Lise Bram.
