20th Mystery, Malt & Merlot - April 13, 2018
We are looking forward to our 20th Mystery Malt & Merlot to be held April 13, 2018 at the Marriott Syracuse Downtown, Finger Lakes Ball Room.
As you know, each year, the Mystery Malt & Merlot committee chooses a key recipient. This year, our key recipient is the New Adolescent Psychiatry Department which will consist of 8 beds plus a comfort room. Upstate Medical University will renovate a vacant unit comprised of 7,580 square feet on the seventh floor of the west wing of University Hospital for a new eight (8) bed adolescent psychiatry unit. The population to be served by the unit will include children between the ages of 12 and 17 years of age, including all genders and ethnicities. The unit’s mission will be to provide high quality, evidence based mental health care to youth presenting with acute psychiatric problems requiring hospitalization within the Central New York Region. The proposed unit will provide a shorter term stabilization unit model that the community does not presently have.
Last year we gave $40,000 to our key recipient and this year it is our hope to increase that amount considerably.
Please join us this year!
