Grant: School of Community Health Sciences
The UNLV School of Community Health Sciences, in collaboration with the Nevada Medical Center (NMC), has been awarded a $100,000 grant from the Hearst Foundations to continue its efforts to curb the mental health issues among youth as identified in NMC's 2018 Healthcare Report Card.
Dedicated to tracking year-over-year changes to key indicators of the overall health of Nevada citizens, NMC’s Healthcare Report Card provides health care practitioners, community leaders, and government officials with the data needed to help them understand the state’s most pressing health care challenges. A critical area identified is the suicide rate among adolescents. This grant will help to establish an evidence-based suicide prevention curriculum for eighth- and ninth-graders within the Clark County School District.
