$6.2 million grant to fund Center for Perioperative Mental Health
Clinicians and researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis have received a four-year, $6.2 million grant from the National Institute of Mental Health to launch a center designed to help improve mental health in surgery patients, particularly older surgery patients. The center will conduct studies to identify and treat depression and anxiety in surgical patients. This new center is the first NIH-funded center of its kind in the United States.
