Excellence began as an idea – that the time had come to reform mental health care.
Today, we help all who are involved with mental health care by identifying the most promising initiatives and supporting change wherever it leads to excellence.
As an international community foundation, we connect visionary donors with independent researchers and innovative, recovery-focused program developers. With donor-advised funds, Excellence gives serious philanthropists a place to bring new ideas to life and to invest with confidence in a new vision of excellence in mental healthcare.
Together, we are working toward a day when
- excellence in mental health care is the rule rather than the exception.
- recovery is a mainstream expectation and often-achieved goal.
- care is many-faceted, and medication is always at optimal levels.
Together, we support and educate
individuals and families about mental health, trauma and psychiatric diagnoses such as schizophrenia, depression, bipolar, anxiety, ADHD, addiction and others. We strengthen effective psychiatric rehabilitation approaches like peer support and Individual Placement and Support (IPS). We connect the top researchers, practitioners and thinkers in psychiatry and psychology, giving them a forum and an audience.
