BENEFITING: Brain & Behavior Research Foundation
The BBR Foundation is the largest philanthropic organization dedicated to research across all brain and behavior disorders. They award scientists and researchers NARSAD grants that will lead to advances and scientific breakthroughs in the treating of mental illnesses. The NARSAD (National Alliance for Research on Schizophrenia and Depression) grant is one of the highest distinctions in the field of mental health research.
Research has been funded in areas such as Depression, Bipolar Disorder, Schizophrenia, Anxiety Disorder, ADHD, and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, among many others. 100% of contributions made to the foundation go directly to research.
Their vision is "to bring the joy of living to those suffering from mental illness -- those who are ill and their families and friends."
I borrowed a lot of that from their website. You should check them out at www.bbrfoundation.org. Their site also provides valuable resources and educational material, and offers inspirational true stories from people who have overcome their struggles with brain and behavior disorders.
The BBR Foundation's cause is near and dear to me, and this is my way of supporting them. I invite you to do the same by donating through this page.
Thanks for your support.
