The Brain & Behavior Research Foundation is committed to alleviating the suffering caused by mental illness by awarding grants that will lead to advances and breakthroughs in scientific research.
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 vision is to bring the joy of living to those affected by mental illness -- those who are ill and their families and friends.
Since 1987 the Brain & Behavior Research Foundation has awarded nearly $300 million in over 4,000 NARSAD grants to more than 3,300 scientists around the world.
Over a quarter of a century, we have awarded nearly $300 million worldwide to more than 3,300 scientists carefully selected by our prestigious Scientific Council.
