Together we can raise awareness, fight stigma, develop new treatments and diagnostic tools, and achieve our mission of transforming children's lives.

Over 17 million American children suffer from a psychiatric disorder — more than the number of children affected by leukemia, diabetes and AIDS combined. The challenges are enormous, but our work is transformative. Our clinical care, scientific research and public information and advocacy campaigns have lasting impact. Through your gift you can help us end suffering and open a new future for our children.
