More than 50% of adults and children with mental health conditions received no mental health treatment in the past year. (SAMHSA, 2016)

Through our 12 programs and partnership initiatives, 25 awards and eight fellowships, we are working to close that gap in care by addressing the most pressing mental health crises, supporting the profession of psychiatry, and fostering community awareness. We need your help to extend our impact.
