Why the $500,000 Grant Would be Very Helpful to the APA

The APA Foundation researches the causes of mental disorders, and the ways to better care for those with said mental disorders. Receiving this grant would allow us to go more in-depth with our research and may help us find ways to treat, and possibly even cure, mental disorders like Bipolar, Autism, ADHD, severe phobias, and anxiety disorders. It would also be used to provide better service to those who need special care for their mental disorders.

What Have we Accomplished so Far?

"Advancing mental health, eliminating stigma. That’s quite a mission statement" ("What We Do."Http://www.americanpsychiatricfoundation.org/. Web. 12 Jan. 2016.)

Our researchers and staff are fostering careers in psychiatric research, encouraging early recognition to families, and providing resources and opportunities to medical students and early career psychiatrists.

What Will we be Able to do Better if we Receive This Grant?

Receiving this grant would provide the necessary funding to purchase more advanced equipment, making the research portion of our foundation run even better than it already is. It will also be used to provide a higher level of care to those that have been diagnosed with a mental disorder.

Why Should People Get Help With Their Anxiety Disorders?

"Anxiety disorders are highly treatable, yet only one-third of those who suffer from an anxiety disorder receive treatment."("Anxiety Disorders."Http://www.workplacementalhealth.org/. Web. 14 Jan. 2016.)

If you have an anxiety disorder, it is important that you get help. They are treatable, and the longer you wait, the harder it is to get back in control of it. The Psychiatrists here at the APA would be more than happy to help treat you.
