On September 21, 18 foursomes of donors and friends played in the second annual Golf Classic to help raise funds for the child and adolescent mental health programs at Lucile Packard Children's Hospital Stanford and Stanford University School of Medicine.

Held at the beautiful Stanford University Golf Course, the day's highlights included Mitch Juricich (host and creator of KNBR's "Hooked on Golf") serving as emcee, members of the Stanford women's golf team helping players with their swing, and a chance to drive from the fairway to the freeway in a brand new Lexus with a hole-in-one.

The event raised $180,000 for the mental health programs at our hospital and School of Medicine. During the reception, Antonio Hardan, MD, director of the division of child and adolescent psychiatry, shared plans for the development of a new crisis team that will include a child psychologist and pediatric psychiatrist and provide individual, family, and group therapy and pharmacotherapy services. Clinicians will be available daily to provide crisis evaluation to children and adolescents who are referred by the emergency department or who are acutely ill and lack appropriate mental health services. The new service may prevent hospitalization and allow for stabilization and more optimal treatment of patients.
