Improving access to care

The Stone Center includes three new endowed chairs for patient-facing psychiatrists specializing in child and adolescent psychiatry and has a fund to support six additional child and adolescent psychiatry fellowships. This will be a dramatic infusion of patient care for southwestern Indiana, where several counties have no such providers. Even in Evansville, this will double the number of child psychiatrists, thus improving access, enabling earlier diagnosis, and starting children sooner on a path to better health.

Unlocking the secrets of bipolar and other mood disorders

The Stone Center will catalyze innovative therapies that alter and advance the treatment of bipolar disorder through a dramatically expanded research team and first-of-its-kind data lake. Physician-scientists in psychiatry conduct research at the Stone Center, with a focus on bipolar and other mood disorders. Their work builds on the existing strength in neurosciences at IU School of Medicine, harnessing tools and expertise in the areas of genetic analysis, animal modeling and imaging, biological sampling, drug development, and data analysis.

This unique asset will attract talented researchers and investment capital to Evansville, making the region a national hub for research in child and psychiatric disorders.
