The Miller-Dwan Foundation’s history of transformative projects, paired with our current vision of eliminating the mental health crisis in our region, has caught the attention of the global mental health leaders responsible for implementing PM+ around the world.
Through the Miller-Dwan Foundation’s partnership with The New School for Social Research and George Washington University, the Twin Ports is joining New York City as one of only two places in the United States implementing a comprehensive PM+ program. Countries successfully implementing PM+ include: Pakistan, Kenya, Nepal, Syria, Turkey and Colombia.
