Marquette University's Behavior Clinic received word this week that, in addition to recent funding from the Brighter Futures Initiative, the Clinic will also receive a generous $30,000 gift from the Faye McBeath Foundation.
The Clinic, which is currently entirely dependent upon external funding for its operations, will use the funds to hire a full-time Clinical Administrator. The new administrator will seek opportunities to move the Behavior Clinic toward an outpatient mental health clinic model, allowing them to bill insurance/Medicaid for a portion of the clinic's services. Clinic personnel hope that the new revenue stream will increase the clinic's long-term sustainability, decreasing its dependence upon external grant funding.
