Brain & Behavior Research Foundation

MISSION

The Brain & Behavior Research Foundation is committed to alleviating the suffering caused by mental illness by awarding grants that will lead to advances and breakthroughs in scientific research.

WHERE YOUR SUPPORT GOES

The Brain & Behavior Research Foundation was originally incorporated in 1981 as the American Schizophrenia Foundation.  In 1985, the organization became the National Alliance for Research on Schizophrenia and Depression (NARSAD). In 2011, the organization rebranded itself, becoming the Brain & Behavior Research Foundation, awarding NARSAD Grants to fund research in every major area of brain and behavior research for all mental illness.

THE RESULTS

We have awarded more than $360 million to fund more than 5,000 grants to more than 4,000 scientists around the world.
