One Mind is a patient-led and patient-centric leading mental health non-profit that focuses on healing the lives of people impacted by brain illness and injury. Influenced by their son Brandon’s schizophrenia diagnosis, Shari and Garen Staglin launched One Mind in 1995 to bridge the gaps that they saw in mental health research funding and patient support.

Since then, One Mind has become a leading mental health non-profit that catalyzes comprehensive action across the scale of the brain health crisis, working from science to patients to society. Moving towards our VISION of HEALTHY BRAINS FOR ALL, One Mind is accelerating treatments and cures for mental disorders and providing hope to patients and their families.

Mental Health Lived Experience

PATIENTS FIRST

Collaborative Brain Science

STRATEGIC COLLABORATION

We create true value when we work together with key partners across sectors and institutions to bolster existing initiatives and fill gaps when needed.

OPEN SCIENCE

We incentivize a collaborative research culture that promotes free sharing of ideas, methods, and data, to speed up brain health discoveries and their translation into diagnostics and cures.

Brain Health Legacy

MENTAL HEALTH IS BRAIN HEALTH

We combat stigma by raising public awareness of mental health conditions by communicating them as disorders of the brain, rooted in biology and not as a character flaw of the individual.
