Gifts & Awards
Leonard and Helen R. Stulman
The University of Maryland School of Medicine's Department of Psychiatry proudly acknowledges The Leonard & Helen R. Stulman Charitable Foundation for their recent two-year, $200,000 grant award for our Informed Care Training Program (ICTP). The ICTP seeks to improve the quality of care and to reduce unmet needs for care among persons with schizophrenia who are receiving community based services. This project will be unique in its inclusion of patients, families and clinical staff in a partnership with researchers to identify their most pressing clinical problems and implement evidenced-based solutions. This process will set an example for bringing the new knowledge of the University setting into the community.
