The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is providing grant funding to support the University of Maryland, Baltimore (PI – Dr. Jodi Jacobson Frey) to provide access to and assess outcomes of free and anonymous online mental health screenings and referral resources for middle-aged men throughout Michigan.

Screening for Mental Health, one of the primary partner organizations on the grant, is leading the development and promotion of an online campaign to provide such services across the state. The campaign, HealthyMenMichigan.org (launching September 26th), aims to connect middle-aged men in Michigan who voluntarily complete an online screening for depression and suicide, with online and community resources. The voluntary research study will measure the effectiveness of these resources and programming.

Our goal is simple: To provide middle-aged men in Michigan with the tools they need to take care of themselves, and to get the help they need when they need it most.

For more information about HealthyMenMichigan.org or to learn about how you or your organization can be a partner in promoting the campaign, please contact Ashley Boyd at Screening for Mental Health at 781-591-5234 or ABoyd@MentalHealthScreening.org.
