Jacobson Frey Earns CDC Funding for "Preventing Suicide in Michigan Men" Project

Professor Jodi Jacobson Frey, PhD, and her team were just awarded a new five year grant funded by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The grant, titled, Preventing Suicide in Michigan Men (PRiSMM) is a comprehensive multi-component collaboration, led by the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services.

PRiSMM is designed to reduce Michigan’s suicide morbidity and mortality rates by 10% over five years. With a focus on adult men, who represent 67% of the suicide deaths annually in Michigan, PRiSMM is designed to reduce the occurrence of suicidal behaviors among adult men. Dr. Frey is the University of Maryland Subcontract Principal Investigator and she and her team with leaders from Grit Digital and University of Utah will contribute to this project by building on her prior work in Michigan to further expand the reach and impact of Man Therapy in reducing suicide risk with working aged men.
