We have all been touched in some way by the heartbreaking realities of youth mental illness. The truth is it’s a growing epidemic with 1 in 5 children, teens, and young adults struggling with their mental health. Yet there is a stigma around the topic. We AIM to end the silence and encourage talk about youth mental health.
What We Do
- We are building a movement with a positive, forward-thinking focus.
- We are raising awareness by simply talking about youth mental health.
- We are funding clinical research that can help kids now, not years in the future.
- We intend to improve access to effective treatments by funding clinical trials.
AIM for Mental Health distinguishes itself from other organizations by its work building a movement to fund clinical research to find solutions for mental health disorders* in youth. AIM wants everyone to get involved and stand up for its campaign, not just those directly affected by youth mental health.
AIM is not disorder or institution specific, which means that we fund research for all mental disorders in youth and fund the best cutting-edge research regardless of where the research is being done.
Our purpose touches lives in a very personal way, and gives hope to children and families facing the challenges that mental health disorders bring.
*These disorders include, but are not limited to, ADHD, anxiety, depression, mood disorders, schizophrenia, tourette syndrome and autism spectrum disorders. We also address the bi-products of some of these brain disorders including eating disorders, addiction and suicide.
