Hundreds of millions of people around the world suffer from anxiety disorders and related mood disorders and mental health conditions. Some studies estimate that the number may be as high as 30% of the world’s population. And there are no age, gender, genetic, racial, geographic, or socio-economic boundaries. But there are people and organizations out there, diligently working and seeking answers, solutions, and treatments for those in need.
Helping people is more than a mission for us; it’s a passion to make the most positive impact possible. We are honored and privileged to be working with, and for the benefit of, pre-eminent institutions and organizations that do pioneering work in research, treatment, and public education. That is why all the donations received, as well as 100% of Anxiety.org revenue in 2018, will be distributed among the following:
The UCLA Anxiety Disorders Program delivers world-class treatment to patients suffering from the spectrum of anxiety disorders including OCD, PTSD, panic attacks, phobias, social anxiety and general anxiety disorder. Psychiatrists, psychologists, and social workers work as a team for analysis and therapy, medication management, clinical trials of new interventions, and access to other similar programs within the UCLA academic medical center.
The Pacific Institute of Medical Research is a non-profit and independent research organization with a primary specialty in psychiatry. Founded over 30 years ago, PIMR works with the pharmaceutical and medical device industries to conduct clinical research studies. The focus is on high quality outpatient studies with the goal of improving patient treatments and outcomes for those suffering from a wide range of psychiatric conditions.
iFred’s motto is “Shine a light on depression” and has chosen the sunflower as it’s symbol. The non-profit’s aim is to “eliminate the stigma associated with the disease through prevention, research and education.” iFred works with other organizations and individuals to promote and implement campaigns to educate the public about support and treatment for depression. Representatives of iFred are regular guests on radio/tv/cable shows, contributors to professional and consumer publications, members of various advisory boards, and regular invitees and speakers at international health conferences like those held by the World Health Organization and the United Nations.
SchoolsForHope.org is a curriculum project developed by iFred. Based on research indicating that “hope” can be learned, the program equips students, parents, and educators with tools to find and maintain hope. Hopelessness is the leading indicator for suicide and suicidal thoughts and the rate of suicide in K-12 students rises significantly every year. The first phase of the curriculum includes ten lessons that teach 5th graders social and emotional learning skills to help them maintain hope during anxious and stressful times in their lives. Donations go to supply staff, further develop curriculum, and extend outreach efforts.
All of the above are tax-exempt entities as set forth under Internal Revenue Code, section 501(c)(3). Please donate now to help these highly qualified and committed organizations help others. Every dollar donated, and all the revenue received by Anxiety.org, goes to support their activities.
Thank you for helping Anxiety.Org and the organizations fulfill their missions.
