NARSAD Grants are one of the most vital supports for mental health research. The Foundation funds the most innovative ideas in neuroscience and psychiatry, selected by its 173-member all volunteer Scientific Council, to better understand the causes and develop new ways to treat brain and behavior disorders. 

In 2016 we funded more than $19 million divided between approximately 400 Young Investigator Grantees, approximately 80 Independent Investigator Grantees, and 15 Distinguished Investigator Grantees who we expect will make exciting discoveries over the next few years.
