Centerstone Receives $30,000 From McNair Foundation To Fund Mental Health Services For Youth

Organization Founded by Titans Quarterback Contributes Two Gifts to Tennessee’s Largest Mental Healthcare Provider

Nashville, Tenn.
— Centerstone, Tennessee’s leading provider of behavioral health services, has received two gifts totaling $30,000 from the Steve McNair Foundation, established by Tennessee Titans quarterback Steve McNair, to support mental health programs for youth.

Centerstone has received $25,000 as one of the beneficiaries of the Steve McNair Celebrity Golf Classic, an event sponsored by the foundation. In addition, the foundation recently presented Centerstone with a $5,000 gift.

Both donations provide funds for Centerstone’s prevention and counseling programs for children and teens. Centerstone serves 19,000 young people with mental health or behavioral disorders and their families across Middle Tennessee.

“Steve is a true inspiration, and not simply because of his prowess on the football field,” said Bob Vero, Centerstone’s president and chief operating officer. “His foundation’s support of our programs for young people is helping us help them overcome mental illness, and become winners in the game of life.”
