Transforming Mental Health Care

You can transform lives. For those struggling with depression, anxiety, and related illnesses, finding care and the right treatment is critical. At U-M’s Department of Psychiatry, we are committed to broadening access to mental health care while identifying novel, effective treatments tailored to the individual.

Your gift will help people dealing with mental illness by supporting our leading-edge care, top-notch training, and innovative research. 

You can support our efforts to:

  • Provide the most precise treatment based on the latest science
  • Increase access to mental health care and decrease disparities
  • Innovate in training doctors and scientists
  • Develop new and better interventions and preventatives

Our faculty, researchers, and learners are transforming mental health care from every angle — improving how we diagnose, treat, and prevent mental illnesses of all kinds. Your support will change and save lives.
