DFPM-RED faculty member Nikki Edge, Ph.D., is collaborating with Russellville school district and NLR preschools to implement a pilot ‘trauma-informed’ classrooms.

DFPM-RED’s Cindy Crone and LaTunja Sockwell will be part of a homeless project with Our House funded by SAMHSA.

UAMS and Our House are excited to share that the Home Together grant application to SAMHSA that your organization supported has been funded for five years. This provides an innovative and much-needed opportunity to improve health and social outcomes of homeless or housing insecure pregnant women and mothers of young children to age five who also have serious mental illness (SMI) or co-occurring mental illness and substance use disorder (COD).”
