The A.J. and Sigismunda Palumbo Charitable Trust Helps Students, Staff, and Caregivers "Chill"

With grant funding from the A.J. and Sigismunda Palumbo Charitable Trust, more individuals will receive critical mental health support through the Chill Project by Allegheny Health Network (AHN). The program transforms the delivery of behavioral health in schools by offering localized, integrated services—such as mindfulness practices—to school communities.

The Chill Project is offered through the AHN Psychiatry and Behavioral Health Institute and benefits students, educators, and families. Thanks in part to four years of support from the A.J. and Sigismunda Palumbo Charitable Trust, the Chill Project has been able to serve 18 schools, logged over 13,000 encounters with students, supported more than 750 educators and administrators, and logged more than 1,500 encounters with parents and caregivers.

Dr. Bailey Runs Boston Marathon for Cancer Research

Dr. Bailey Boston Marathon

Dr. Bailey with his son Sam

In 2013, Dr. Stephen Bailey’s father was diagnosed with locally advanced stage IV esophageal cancer. Dr. Bailey, chair of the AHN Cardiovascular Institute and system chair of the AHN Department of Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery, says his father had an extraordinary medical team that believed in him and provided aggressive, innovative chemo and radiation therapy that cured his disease and extended his life by eight years. Last month, Dr. Bailey ran the Boston Marathon to raise funds for cancer research at the Dana Farber Cancer Center in memory of his father, who passed away just a year ago. For every dollar raised over his original goal, Dr. Bailey plans to match with a donation to support AHN cancer patients.

For those faced with perinatal mood and anxiety disorders, research has shown that treatment should target the mother-infant relationship in addition to the mothers' depressive symptoms to improve the developing mother-child relationship. The Jewish Women’s Foundation awarded the AHN Women’s Behavioral Health grant funding to support a ‘best-in-class’ integrative model of care that addresses the needs of both women and children, a unique two-part modality not commonly offered in the traditional healthcare setting.
