The Lee Foundation Mental Health Professional Development Initiative at D’Youville provides multiple professional development training opportunities on a range of mental health topics, including current best practices as well as emerging trends.
Funded by the Patrick P. Lee Foundation, the Lee Foundation Mental Health Professional Development Initiative is designed with input from the area’s mental health workforce. D'Youville continues to be a leader in the education and training of health field professionals. Both clinical and non-clinical professionals can upgrade their competencies and acquire new skills to better meet the mental health needs of the community.
The Patrick P. Lee Foundation is a private family foundation started in 2007, and concentrates its grant-making in two key areas: education and mental health. By targeting funds and identifying opportunities for cross-systems work, the foundation seeks to have an immediate and measurable impact.
