UCSF nabs $50 million anonymous gift for new Mission Bay health center

A $50 million anonymous gift is making it possible for UC San Francisco to move ahead on a new mental health center on its burgeoning Mission Bay campus, slated to include research, training and clinical services focusing on the prevention and treatment of mental illness.
The gift includes a parcel of land on Third Street and funds to construct the new 140,000-square-foot center and a parking facility for it.

The center, scheduled to open in the spring of 2019, will also include a Child, Teen and Family Center, a “convening space” so UCSF can host national and international conferences on related topics, and a new home for the biomedical university’s Department of Psychiatry, which includes 190 full-time faculty and other researchers and staffers.
