Marsha Linehan recipient of two awards

The first one comes from her Alma Mater – Loy­ola Uni­ver­sity, Chicago – The Grad­u­ate School Damen Award. Named after Loy­ola University’s pri­mary founder, Arnold Damen, S.J., this award is granted to an alumnus(a) from each of Loyola’s schools and col­leges. It rec­og­nizes the qual­i­ties of lead­er­ship in indus­try, lead­er­ship in com­mu­nity and ser­vice to others.

The sec­ond award is the 2013 Inter­na­tional Acad­emy for Sui­cide Research ( IASR) Morselli Medal.  The Morselli Medal, which is named in honor of Enrico Morselli, an Ital­ian psy­chi­a­trist (1852 –1929) from the Uni­ver­sity of Genoa who was a pio­neer in sui­cide research, is the Academy’s most dis­tin­guished award and is given every 2 years to indi­vid­u­als who have made out­stand­ing and impor­tant life­time con­tri­bu­tions to the study of sui­cide, sui­ci­dal behav­iors or sui­cide prevention.
