We encourage you to consider donating money to some of the leading schizophrenia research groups that are searching for cures (and preventative actions) for schizophrenia. Following are a list of the leading non-profit groups that are funding research:

NARSAD: The Mental Health Research Association
Leading the search for the causes, improved treatments and prevention of schizophrenia

NARSAD: The Mental Health Research Association is the largest donor-supported organization in the world dedicated to raising funds for scientific research on schizophrenia and other brain and behavior disorders. Its mission is to accelerate the search for the causes, better treatments and prevention of mental illnesses.

Since its inception in 1987 as the National Alliance for Research on Schizophrenia and Depression, NARSAD has awarded nearly $200 million in 2,948 research grants to 2,284 scientists at 347 universities and medical research centers in the U.S. and 25 other countries. Through its competitive grant programs for young, mid-career and senior scientists, NARSAD funds the most innovative and promising research being conducted today.

NARSAD supports extensive research of schizophrenia, including investigations of genetic and environmental causes, changes in brain structure and circuitry, the role of neurotransmitters, epidemiology, psychopharmacology and new treatment approaches. All this is made possible by the generosity and commitment of thousands of donors.

Every contribution that NARSAD receives goes 100% to research, thanks to the generosity of two family foundations that underwrite the NARAD's administrative and overhead expenses. NARSAD has received the highest ratings for its philanthropic practices from Charity Navigator and the American Institute of Philanthropy, leading independent evaluators of charitable organizations.

Join NARSAD today in supporting leading-edge research on the causes, better treatments and cures for schizophrenia and other mental illnesses.

Note: We've talked with NARSAD and made sure that donations made via the page-link below go 100% to schizophrenia-focused research. You can do either on-line donations (via credit card) or print out a form and mail it to NARSAD with a check.

I started the web site after my brother - who suffered from schizophrenia - took his own life because of the disease. My goal with the site is to create a free information sharing web center to get the best possible information out to patients and families so that people who have schizophrenia can get better treatment faster and therefore live better lives.

To make it easier for you to help us, I have registered as a 501 (c) (3) non-profit project, under the Tides Center - a non-profit organization that helps other smaller non-profit organizations. Because we consciously limit the amount of advertising that we accept, important financial support must come from you, the people who use and benefit from our site. All donations go directly towards updating with the best and most current information, keeping our Discussion servers running, and sending out our free newsletter.
