My name is Ken Harrison and like so many of you, I know first-hand the challenges of caring for a loved one with mental illness. And while each of us faces unique issues, the need for better treatments and therapies is what we are all in search of.

That’s where the Brain & Behavior Research Foundation makes a difference. As a board member and an advocate, I’ve agreed to Chair TeamUp! America to support research in communities throughout the country, and I’m inviting you to join me by forming a team in your neighborhood.

TeamUp! America is a community-driven fundraising challenge with a goal to raise $250,000 by November 16, 2011. 100% of the money you raise will fund leading research institutions in your home state.

As the nation’s leading not for profit funding mental illness, the Brain & Behavior Research Foundation has been funding breakthroughs to help the 1 in 4 Americans* diagnosed with a mental illness for nearly 25 years. Guided by an all volunteer Scientific Council that includes 2 Nobel Prize winning scientists, the Foundation is committed to funding cures.

The TeamUp! America campaign will not only raise much needed money for research – research that will one day fund those cures, but it will also lessen the stigma  that 77 million Americans* deal with each and every day. Please join me and your neighbors as we Team Up! America.

It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3!

1.    Join the TeamUp! America campaign at www.bbrfoundation.org/TeamUpAmerica

2.    Build your team with your family, friends, and neighbors

3.    Hold a fundraiser or make a donation to show your support

If you have any questions please feel free to contact me at events@bbrfoundation.org or call 800.829.8289.

Thanks for supporting TeamUp! America.

Sincerely,

Ken
