Patrick Russell left this world at the young age of 58. Patrick had loved ones that battled with depression, anxiety, and other mental illnesses. When he saw this illness plague those closest to him, his heart broke and he ached for them. In many ways he took on their pain. He expressed his concerns for not knowing how to help and the lack of information readily available for people in need.
Patrick Russell would be honored that you are helping to advance the research for better diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
Thank you for your time, love and gifts!
Here is why we have chosen to support the Brain & Behavior Research Foundation:
Since 1987, the Brain & Behavior Research Foundation has awarded more than $365 million to fund more than 5,000 grants to more than 4,000 scientists around the world.
The mission of the Foundation is to alleviate the suffering caused by mental illness by awarding grants that will lead to advances and breakthroughs in scientific research.
100% of donations for research are invested directly into research grants thanks to the generosity of two family foundations that underwrite operational expenses at the Foundation.
The funding model of the Brain & Behavior Research Foundation encourages new and innovative research in that we are able to support new ideas from bottom up generated by scientists.
The Foundation only funds scientists whose research is reviewed and recommended by a world-renowned Scientific Council including Nobel Prize winners and chairs of psychiatric departments.
