American Psychiatric Foundation VA

At the American Psychiatric Foundation (APF), our mission is to advance public understanding of mental illnesses. We promote awareness of mental illnesses and the effectiveness of treatment, the importance of early intervention, access to care and the need for high quality services and treatment through a combination of grants, programs, research funding and awards. Our work reaches businesses, schools and community organizations that are committed to educating the public about mental illnesses. As the philanthropic and educational arm of the American Psychiatric Association (APA), we combine the knowledge and credibility of the world's largest psychiatric organization with our patient and family-centered mission.
