The NARBHA Institute Cardon Legacy Grants

The NARBHA Institute created the Cardon Legacy Grants in recognition of former Northern Arizona Regional Behavioral Health Authority Board Chairman and current and founding NARBHA Institute Board member Marriner Cardon.

Marriner has served both organizations since 2003 and throughout his career, he has continued to foster a spirit of collegiality and has dedicated himself to community service.

The NARBHA Institute and its Legacy Council recognize the mission-committed and outcome-oriented efforts by behavioral and integrated health homes to provide integrated care delivery. The objective of this grant program is to go beyond common encounters to identify and provide one-time funding for new, innovative pilot programs that focus on resiliency, mental health, and wellbeing.
