What We Do
The United Brain Association, Inc., formerly The American Brain Society, Inc., is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization working to find cures for over 600 Brain and Mental Health-related issues and disorders.
Through our website and our Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, Twitter, and YouTube social platforms, we currently provide Brain Resources detailing over 160 neurological and psychological disorders, with our range of content increasing monthly. Our resources present information ranging from detection, to treatment, to caregiving, to research projects current recruiting or underway. In addition, we share the Brain Stories of our affected community across our social platforms, and we raise funds to support research. We provide a voice for our members to share their experiences with brain and mental health issues, welcoming those on the outside to come in and join us.
Our goal is to treat all matters of the mind with equal respect and determination, realizing that all brain and mental health-related disorders take place within one mind. At the United Brain Association, No Mind is Left Behind.
We are currently funded by the generous endowment of our Founder, J.A. Boulton, with crowd-sourced contributions from our ever-increasing community. To date, we have funded research into Depression, Parkinson’s Disease, Anorexia, and Bulimia at Johns Hopkins Medical Institute, PTSD at Yale University, and Alcoholism at New York University – Langone. With the support of our community, we strive to support a broad spectrum of research into the continually evolving field of human cognition.
