Jan Goodson, Vice President of Business & Service Development, oversees government grant writing and the Grants Office for the Centerstone enterprise. This includes engaging diverse funders in the organization’s work to ensure that people and families facing behavioral health issues find the best possible care and hope for recovery. This also involves coordination of federal grant funding across Centerstone to optimize and maximize the impact of related efforts.
Goodson received her BS in psychology, sociology and criminal justice from Middle Tennessee State University and her MBA from Washington State University. She led the Grant Writing team to earn the Centerstone Board of Director’s Outstanding Service Award in 2004, 2010 and 2012, and she has been recognized with awards from local business and medical publications.
Goodson co-authored the Community Mental Health Centers chapter of Mental Health Services, APublic Health Perspective, 3rd edition, a book which David Shern, PhD, President and CEO for Mental Health America, called an “exceptional book [that] should be required reading for anyone designing or implementing health reform changes within public health or mental health systems.”
