What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Untreated brain illness or injury is a life-altering condition that significantly debilitates individuals, their friends and families, and the surrounding economy. The global economic burden from mental illness alone is estimated at nearly $2.5 trillion per year, projected to rise to $6 trillion by 2030. In addition, there are hurdles within the current research landscape that slow the pace of biomedical brain research. Recent estimates indicate that it takes an average of 17 years for medical discoveries to be applied in community settings – the place where they can help patients who struggle. This delay is unacceptable and must be accelerated. Overcoming these limitations is what drives One Mind's efforts. With a focus on fostering paradigm-shifting scientific research and collaborations, our work is changing the culture within the current research landscape to radically accelerate cures for brain illnesses and injuries now.

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Rising Star Research Awards

Given the challenges of understanding and finding therapies for brain illnesses and injuries, the One Mind Rising Star Awards encourage the community of researchers to innovate in basic and translational science to benefit patients, while supporting the research of emerging leaders in the field.

The overarching goal is to award promising, early career investigators an opportunity to enhance or accelerate research on major neuropsychiatric disorders, such as anxiety, addiction, bipolar disorder, depression, post-traumatic stress, schizophrenia, and traumatic brain injury. One Mind grants two to five Rising Star Awards each year. Total funding for each of the individual Rising Star Awards is $350,000, with $100,000 distributed annually over a 3-year period.

Population(s) Served
People with psychosocial disabilities

One Mind at Work exists to improve the mental health of individuals that serve in our workforces. One Mind at Work has over 140 organizations as members that represent over 7 million employees and 26 million people total, including family members, who are receiving improved mental health support via the One Mind at Work Charter.

Support One Mind at Work provides its member organizations include:
- Sharing and elevating best practices
- Building an index to help support and drive member performance
- Establishing a solutions marketplace
- Providing expert guidance
- Sharing and learning through convening and living laboratories

Population(s) Served
People with psychosocial disabilities

One Mind All Media is a mission-driven transmedia brand that attracts and consolidates partners in brain health research, improves care, speeds cures, and celebrates neurodiversity. The media program produces quality topic-specific films and online content. Example: Hiding in Plain Sight: Youth Mental Illness - A two-part documentary by renowned documentarian Ken Burns on PBS and facilitated by One Mind. This collaborative film was distributed to 350 PBS stations. A partnership with YouTube measures 5M average annual views of physician-reviewed content that reduce stigma and provides education about mental health. Conversations with well-known medical experts, and presentations by and features with individuals with lived experience are produced and curated.

Population(s) Served
People with psychosocial disabilities
Chronically ill people

The One Mind Accelerator is an intensive 8-week program to increase the number and scale of companies building real-world solutions to address mental health challenges. Program includes education, finance modeling, mentors, speakers, industry networking, and a seed investment of $100,000. Success means knowledge gained and partnerships made, and a new quality service or product for those with mental illness.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

One Mind's near-term goal is to improve life prospects for youth throughout our society by establishing prevention/early intervention as an easily accessible, insurance-reimbursed means to address the growing prevalence of serious behavioral illness.

One Mind's middle-term goal is to enable the development of safer, more effective treatments, both remedial and preventive, for all severe psychiatric diseases.

One Mind's long-term goal is to enable the neuroscientific discovery and development of cures for all brain diseases, as quickly as possible.

We also seek to raise awareness and educate people to understand the nature of brain disease and reduce the discrimination and stigma that is often associated with people who have a brain disorder.

To accomplish nationwide psychosis prevention/early intervention (PEI) in the near term, we have funded the North American Prodrome Longitudinal Study (NAPLS) consortium to develop effective tools to detect and treat psychosis as early as possible. We are collaborating with this consortium, the federal government, our partner nonprofit, One Mind, and the Steinberg Insititute to establish a standardized, pooled knowledge network which can link existing and new PEI clinics to improve patient outcomes. University PEI clinics will assist community clinics in collecting and sharing research data to validate innovative treatments. Once an evidence base is established that PEI works, insurance providers can be persuaded to provide coverage so that youth nationwide can benefit from preventive care.
To accomplish the development of better psychiatric treatments, we are funding the most promising translational projects of "Rising Star" neuroscientists, to make better interventions available within several years, and to launch productive careers.
To accomplish brain disease cures as soon as possible, we fund basic brain research to better understand the nature of psychiatric diseases. We work with our partner One Mind to enable Open Science principles (large-scale standardized data sharing and research collaboration). Through relationship-building and tools to enable scientists to pool their data and their talents, we believe cure research can be radically accelerated.
To raise awareness we regularly post information on latest developments in brain research and advocacy on our social media channels and website. We host dinners across the country to engage potential supporters and provide information.

Our relationships throughout the brain health community, including in advocacy, industry, research and government, enable us to raise funds, direct research and form public/private partnerships toward the fulfillment of all three of our main goals.
Our Board members have considerable experience in public and private/non - profit Board governance They each have a friend or family member with a brain disease and are highly motivated for One Mind Institute to achieve its mission and goals.

Currently, the NAPLS psychosis prevention network includes 9 main research/treatment centers and several satellite clinics. Together with the RAISE early intervention centers and community clinics funded by SAMHSA and State funding, there are about over 200 such clinics known nationwide. Our principals aim to achieve government and private funding to open hundreds more over the next ten years. So far, the NAPLS has treated 720 at-risk clients, 60% of which did not convert to psychosis during their 2 year treatment. We hope to increase that proportion to 90% within 20 years. In these clinics and the community clinics that have arisen more recently, PEI treatment has cut hospitalization rates by 50% among those treated. We hope to reduce rates by 75% within ten years.
Toward better interventions for severe psychiatric disease, since 1996 we have funded the discovery of 21 biological targets for the development of new treatments, the testing of 19 such treatments, the validation of 3 such treatments, and the availability, to clinical research subjects, of 3 such treatments. We hope to enable at least 10 new treatments in testing to be generally clinically available within 20 years.
Toward cures, we have funded the investigation of 28 radically innovative approaches to treating psychiatric disease. Of these, we believe that 3 in particular (prevention, app-based cognitive training, and re-syncing brain circuits through neuro-electrical stimulation) offer dramatic potential to improve lives.
We have more than 16,300 fans on our Facebook site, our mailing list includes more than 12,000 subscribers and our website has hundreds of unique visitors daily.
