APA Joins in Rep. Kennedy's Brain Research Campaign

The American Psychiatric Foundation, APA's charitable and educational arm, has stepped up with a $50,000 grant to support the conference that will launch the campaign, known as “The Next Frontier: One Mind for the Brain.” Read more about this major effort to advance brain research in the May 6 issue of Psychiatric News, accessible on May 6 at
