You are your brain.

Our brains are an amazing interconnection of billions of neurons, all working together to make us who we are.  Our brains let us sense, feel emotions, and live our lives.

One in six families experience brain and mental health disorders.  These issues, some neurological, some psychological, keep us from making the most of our lives.

Through the funding of research and education, we can find solutions to many of these issues, helping us live fuller lives and return that smile to our faces.

Many brain disorders are inherited.  In many cases, these issues are passed down from generation to generation.  In other cases, a combination of recessive paternal and/or maternal genetics can result in brain disorder(s).  What’s hiding in your head?  Are you destined to repeat your family’s history?  Is your family history getting to you?

In America, 20 million people in roughly 16% of households suffer from a brain or mental health disorder. According to the National Alliance on Mental Health, 1 in 5 Americans struggles with their mental health. Often, neurological conditions overlap with mental illness, resulting in a complex diagnosis and treatment.  Our funding of brain and mental health education and research will lead to discoveries and solutions and remove the stigma of brain disorders.  Your donation will make a difference.

Your brain Cries, Runs, and Smiles

Brain and mental health disorders bring sadness to one in six families.  These disorders slow us down and prevent us from reaching our full potential.  Your brain contains billions of neurons and trillions of connections, allowing us to sense, feel, and react.  Over 20 million of us are affected by brain and mental health disorders; your donations can restore our smiles.  Research and education can solve these issues and erase the stigma of these disorders.
