ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) - Officials say a nearly $10.8 million donation to the University of Michigan Depression Center will help accelerate development of personalized treatments.

The gift announced Thursday by the Ann Arbor school is from alumni Frances and Kenneth Eisenberg of Bloomfield Hills and their family. The university says treatments being boosted are aimed at clinical depression, bipolar disorder and related illnesses.

The family says the added resources are needed to help fight depression. Kenneth Eisenberg says in a statement the family’s goal “is to remove the stigma associated with this disease and to provide the necessary financial support to assure that meaningful treatment is accessible.”

Kenneth Eisenberg is chairman and CEO of Kenwal Steel, a family business. The Eisenbergs earned bachelor’s degrees from the University of Michigan in 1964.
