Great Neck, N.Y.—More than 340 patrons gathered in the search for cures to mental illness this past Friday evening on October 30, while celebrating the creation of job opportunities for people with disabilities at NARSAD’s  22nd annual Awards Dinner at the Pierre. The event, which raised $1 million, was highlighted by the presentation of the organization’s first-ever “Productive Lives” award to Randy Lewis, senior vice president of logistics for Walgreens, and award presentations to eight celebrated researchers for their lifetime accomplishments in brain and behavior research. Mr. Lewis was honored for his commitment to providing an inclusive workplace for people of all abilities, including those with mental illness.

Presenting the award to Mr. Lewis was Senator Pete Domenici of New Mexico, who has been instrumental in helping pass one of the most significant mental-health bills in U.S. history—The Paul Wellstone and Pete Domenici Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act of 2008. NARSAD Scientific Council president Herbert Pardes, M.D., president and CEO of New York-Presbyterian Hospital, made the presentations to the scientists. Today show contributor Gail Saltz, MD, associate professor of psychiatry at
New York-Presbyterian Hospital, Weill-Cornell School of Medicine, emceed the event.

Researchers and families came together to support NARSAD, which raises funds to provide grants to researchers seeking new insight into causes and possible treatments for mental illnesses that include schizophrenia, depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety disorders such as PTSD, and childhood disorders like autism.

In addition to the evening’s honorees and presenters, the evening’s attendees included: NARSAD Chairman Stephen A. Lieber; the organization’s President Emeritus Constance C. Lieber; Dean of the Columbia University Medical Center Lee Goldman, M.D.; Nobel Prize laureates Eric Kandel, M.D., of Columbia University, and Paul Greengard, Ph.D., of Rockefeller University, George Handran, trustee of the Sidney R. Baer Jr. Foundation; NARSAD Board Member Lynnda Maria Davis with husband Steven Davis, Board Chairman of Bob Evans Farms, Inc., and Milton and Tamar Maltz.

Following is the complete list of the eight NARSAD 2009 prize winners selected by NARSAD’s 116-member Scientific Council, a volunteer body of leading experts in mental health research (additional information is available on the NARSAD Web site):

NARSAD began awarding prizes in 1987, with the introduction of the Lieber Prize, and over the years added the additional prizes as a way to recognize those who have made outstanding contributions to the advancement of brain science and the improvement of treatment options for patients.

Since NARSAD began funding research, it has distributed more than $256 million in grants to nearly 3,000 scientists at more than 440 universities, medical centers and research institutes in the United States and 28 other countries. NARSAD was initially founded as the National Alliance for Research on Schizophrenia and Depression and now supports work on all major mental illnesses, including bipolar disorder, autism, and anxiety, such as post-traumatic stress and obsessive compulsive disorders.
