The GlassHalfQuestion campaign is in memory of the love of my life, Jill Messick. Jill was an amazing woman and her battle with the demons of bipolar disorder ultimately led to her tragic end. Hollywood likes its villains, but the real villain in this case was the scourge of mental health disorders and the lack of understanding we have about these in our society
But this is also an Opportunity for us to explore the question of Balance and Perspective. At www.glasshalfquestion.com, you can learn more about my efforts to share some important lessons my time with Jill taught me.
I appreciate your support in this campaign.
Since 1987, the Brain & Behavior Research Foundation (BBRF) has awarded more than $380 million to fund more than 5,500 grants to more than 4,500 scientists around the world.
According to the Rand Corporation, BBRF is the nation’s top non-governmental funder of mental health research grants.
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 contributions for research are invested in research grants to neuroscientists thanks to the generous support of two family foundations which cover BBRF operating expenses.
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.
