The Board of Directors of the Brain & Behavior Research Foundation (formerly National Alliance for Research on Schizophrenia and Depression or NARSAD), a nonprofit that has funded close to $300 million in mental health research grants since 1987, has named Jeffrey Borenstein, M.D., President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO). A board certified psychiatrist, Dr. Borenstein, has dedicated his professional life to the mental health field and to improving the lives of those with mental illness. He also serves as Editor-in-Chief of the American Psychiatric Association’s Psychiatric News, Associate Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons and host of the award-winning public TV series “Healthy Minds.”
“The Brain & Behavior Research Foundation Board is very proud to have Dr. Borenstein leading the organization. As we enter our second quarter-century of awarding research grants, Jeff’s vast leadership experience and psychiatric background will further the momentum we have gained so that we can achieve the goal of all of our contributors—to find the answers to better treat and ultimately prevent and cure mental illness,” says Stephen Lieber, Board Chairman.
