The Child Mind Institute is an independent, national nonprofit dedicated to transforming the lives of children and families struggling with mental health and learning disorders. Our teams work every day to deliver the highest standards of care, advance the science of the developing brain and empower parents, professionals and policymakers to support children when and where they need it most.

Of the 74.5 million children in the United States, an estimated 17.1 million have or have had a mental health disorder — more than the number of children with cancer, diabetes and AIDS combined. Half of all mental illness occurs before the age of 14, and 75 percent by the age of 24.

In spite of the magnitude of the problem, lack of awareness and entrenched stigma keep the majority of these young people from getting help. Children and adolescents struggling with these disorders are at risk for academic failure, substance abuse and a clash with the juvenile justice system — all of which come at a tremendous cost to them, their families and the community.

The mission of This Is My Brave, Inc. is to end the stigma surrounding mental health issues by sharing personal stories of individuals living successful, full lives despite mental illness through poetry, essay and original music, on stage in front of a live audience. 

Through the sharing of stories and experiences of those in recovery, we provide a sense of community and hope; and encourage others to share their stories. We believe that each time one of us shares our story, there’s another crack helping to break down the stigma surrounding mental illness. Right now, it's time to #LiveBrave, stand up with us to say #isharemystory and help us bring mental health issues into the spotlight because they've been in the dark too long.

We believe in the power of community. There’s strength found in people coming together to propel a movement forward which is why we created our organization.

Project HEAL is America’s strongest voice that full recovery from an eating disorder is possible and should be accessible.

In 2008, at the age of 15, Liana Rosenman and Kristina Saffran founded Project HEAL to raise funds for others who could not otherwise afford treatment. Over the years, we’ve come to understand that money is not the only barrier to accessing treatment, and that clinical treatment is only one piece of the recovery puzzle. Thus in 2017, we reimagined our core services with a new focus on breaking down barriers to care at all stages of the treatment and recovery experience.

Happiness is not just a state; happiness is a skill set that anyone can learn. The World Health Organization has officially stated that depression is the leading cause of global mental and physical disability, affecting 1 in 20 people.

Our goal is to impact 10,000,000 lives. Kindness, mindfulness, and all the other tools we can use are not just niceties – they are key to bringing out the best in us, and our society.

The science is strong and the need is compelling. It’s exciting that we can now give those who need it most the tools to take charge of their own happiness, to become more aware, emotionally resilient, and develop the skills to navigate whatever life presents. Happiness, like all emotions, is contagious; for ourselves and generations to come, let’s create a world where everyone can thrive.
