As many of you know, I have a passion for supporting a cure for mental illness. I majored in Psychology at Fordham and I became aware of the many mental illnesses for which we may have a treatment, but not a cure. The brain is the most complex organ in the body and I feel advancements need to be funded.
Over the course of a year in the United States, 27% of US citizens suffer from a mental illness. Whether or not you are aware, we all have a friend or a family member that suffers from one of the illnesses this foundation supports.
100% of contributions for research are invested in research grants to neuroscientists.
Approximately 1 million people worldwide commit suicide per year. I’d like that number to decrease. Please support me in finding a cure for these deadly, torturing illnesses.
