By supporting and funding best-in-class brain science, One Mind works to speed up discoveries in brain health research through the principles of large-scale open-science. We bring together the best minds in neuroscience around a collective goal to more effectively diagnose, prevent, treat, and even cure brain disease and injury.
Today, one out of every four people on this planet will be affected by a psychiatric illness at some point in their life, and an estimated 15 million people are affected annually by traumatic brain injury. Brain disease and injury are the number one cause of disability worldwide and are estimated to surpass many diseases as the major cause of death by 2020.
We believe that better diagnostics and new therapies can be realized faster by breaking down the existing information silos within the research community that hinder the advancement of neuroscience discovery. One Mind supports researchers who are willing to share their data, stay focused on the needs of patients, and place clinical tools and new therapies before academic achievement and journal publishing recognition. With laser-like focus, we work to fill the gaps in research funding by disseminating donor-supported funds to cover the data standardization, curating and mining needed to gain FDA approval.
Leveraging the 25 years of targeted and passionate brain-focused work our founders have championed, One Mind is leading a revolution in brain science that will bring better treatments to patients now.
One Mind is an international brain health nonprofit that funds brain and mental health research to improve lives.
Brain illnesses and injuries are the #1 cause of adult disability, affecting almost a billion families worldwide.

"We use the term brain health, not mental health, because there is no discrimination or stigma about the brain. There is no shame, no blame about the brain. It’s about brain fitness and brain health."
