Venable Grant Awarded to ADAA

VEN-Foundation_Logo_RGB_slider.jpgADAA is delighted to announce that we have been awarded a 2018 grant from the Venable Foundation. The Venable Foundation works to promote the health and well-being of the community by supporting a wide range of civic, cultural and charitable endeavors as well as public interest law and legal education. 

Immigrant and refugee families in the US face significant barriers in accessing mental health care services. Some of these barriers include: higher levels of stigma, misinformation about mental health, language differences and stressors associated with migration and resettlement. Funding from the Venable grant will allow ADAA to enhance our diversity focused mental health resources that specifically target the immigrant/refugee population. These resources include consumer webinars, blog posts, online support groups and more for immigrant and refugee families.
