Faith Miller and Amanda Sullivan

Faith Miller, an associate professor in the Department of Educational Psychology, and Professor Amanda Sullivan recently received a $5.3 million grant over five years from the U.S. Department of Education Mental Health Service Provider Demonstration Grant Competition. The grant is for “Project LIME: Leading Improvements in Mental-health and Equity.” The goal of the project is to increase the number and diversity of school psychologists who can significantly expand the capacity of high-need districts through enhanced implementation of multi-tiered systems of support (MTSS) to support youth mental health.

Miller is serving as project director/principal investigator (PI) for the study. The Co-PI is Professor Amanda Sullivan, also in the Department of Educational Psychology.
