Tom and the Lion Main Page
Butler Hospital was founded in 1844, as the first hospital in Rhode Island and one of the first psychiatric facilities in the country. As a not-for-profit hospital treating psychiatric disorders, substance abuse, and neurological disorders, Butler serves as the flagship for The Alpert Medical School of Brown University’s Department of Psychiatry and Human Behavior.
The Thomas G. Cavanagh Memorial Fund
The Thomas G. Cavanagh Memorial Fund was created in June 2011 by the Cavanagh family. The Fund’s objective is to raise money and awareness for those suffering from mental illness. As the Fund grows, the hope is to target the specific illness that struck Tom the hardest – schizophrenia.
