Author: Brain & Behavior Research Foundation
The Brain and Behavior Research Foundation is committed to alleviating the suffering of mental illness by awarding grants that will lead to advances and breakthroughs in scientific research. How we do it: 100% of all donor contributions for research are invested in NARSAD Grants leading to discoveries in understanding causes and improving treatments of disorders in children and adults, such as depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, autism, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, and anxiety disorders like obsessive-compulsive and post-traumatic stress disorders. Our credentials: For a quarter of a century, we have awarded nearly $300 million worldwide to more than 3,000 scientists carefully selected by our prestigious Scientific Council. Our Vision: To bring the joy of living to those affected by mental illness – those who are ill and their families and friends. What we believe: Better treatments and breakthroughs come from scientific discovery. Only fund scientists whose research is reviewed and recommended by a world-renowned Scientific Council including Nobel prize winners and chairs of psychiatric departments. 100% of contributions go directly to research. Costs for administration and fund raising are underwritten by outside grants. Our financial operations must be transparent. Those who manage our Foundation must be committed to honesty and integrity. Strategic partnerships that further our mission will be developed with transparency.
