BENEFITING: MCLEAN HOSPITAL CORPORATION
The Jonathan Edward Brooking Memorial Fund for Mental Health Research at McLean Hospital was established to fund critical research that advances our understanding of the causes of mental illness, improves methods of diagnosis and treatment and, ultimately, will identify a cure for psychiatric diseases. My brother took his own life in 1985; it was his final wish that we raise awareness of mental health issues and fund the research that will ensure that nobody will ever have to suffer as he did.
It’s likely that you, somebody in your family, or someone you know, have also been touched by mental illness. This is your chance to help, to acknowledge the pain and sadness it can inflict on entire families, and to do something meaningful to change that.
HOW WILL MY DONATION BE USED?
Your donation will be used to fund psychiatric research at McLean, where more than 400 scientists are working diligently to uncover the biological basis for psychiatric illness.
Although the NIH provides funding for mental health research, federal funding goes to only established research projects. This means that the most innovative and early stage research must be funded by private donations.

THANK YOU, for helping to make a difference. If my brother was alive today, he would surely thank you too.
