MSU professor will help lead new $15 million suicide prevention research center

EAST LANSING — A Michigan State University professor will help lead a new suicide prevention research center that aims to reach people in the prison system who are at risk of suicide.

The National Health and Justice Integration Center for Suicide Prevention will be funded for five years with a $15 million grant from the National Institute of Mental Health. The centre’s research is not yet underway but will begin next year.

Jennifer Johnson, a CS Mott professor of public health at the Michigan State University College of Human Medicine, will be one of the center’s three principal investigators. Two other principal investigators, from Henry Ford Health in Detroit and Brown University in Rhode Island, also lead the program, which involves more than 100 stakeholders, 30 researchers and more than a dozen institutions, including several in the Michigan.
