UC Davis launches $7.5M behavioral health research center
Sacramento Business Journal

The UC Davis Health System launched a $7.5 million behavioral health center today on its Sacramento campus. The project is part of a $15 million research effort funded by Proposition 63. Approved by voters in 2004, the measure raised taxes on incomes over $1 million to support mental health services. A similar $7.5 million grant went to UCLA. The idea is to create a hub that will foster — and bring together — research, education and clinical care related to mental health at the university and within the community.
