The STARR Coalition is yours. It is a forum to bring together the leaders in mental health advocacy, treatment, research and individuals being served in order to create a better system of care. We have goals of stigma reduction, protection of individual rights, and promotion of research as a viable option in the continuum of care.

Great strides in symptom management have come from the brave individuals who have given of their time and bodies to further research in mental health. With their continued commitment, future generations of people diagnosed with a mental illness may find comfort and recovery. We must all work together as professionals and leaders in our fields to further the discussion of how we can promote safe, effective, cutting edge research.
