Eure Family Heroes of Mental Health

Record #:
The late Thad and Alice Eure were well known for their restaurants, the Angus Barn and the 42nd Street Oyster Bar, but when their son was diagnosed with severe bipolar disorder, their lives took a turn. After finding few good answers to their seven-year search for help, the Eures established in 1984 the Foundation of Hope for Research and Treatment of Mental Illness, a non-profit philanthropic organization dedicated to funding breakthroughs in the treatment of mental illness. The foundation has given nearly $2 million for research and 'seed money' has leveraged an additional $89 million in federal grants at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and Dorothea Dix Hospitals.
