Child Mind Institute

Program support
To support collaborative pilot research studies among the Child Mind Institute’s Scientific Research Council, a network of pediatric neuroscientists and clinical researchers from leading academic institutions. The support will help create a global incubator for collaborative research in child mental health, and will be instrumental in shaping the discussion about mental health, and in initiating changes in the way psychiatric research for childhood psychiatric disorders is prioritized, funded and executed.  

Founded in 2009, the Child Mind Institute aims to systematically and scientifically tackle the challenges we face in child and adolescent psychiatry, and to transform child mental health worldwide. The Scientific Research Council is comprised of distinguished scientists in the field of child and adolescent psychiatry, psychology, neuroscience, and neurology. Conceived of as a multi-institutional, scientific “think-tank” with global influence, the Council makes programmatic recommendations to the Child Mind Institute regarding future research directions and priorities.
