About Us

Our Mission:

To create meaningful change by increasing communication, partnerships, and goodwill among stakeholders in the areas of treatment, advocacy, and clinical research with emphasis on community and advocacy engagement, stigma reduction, and ensuring that clinical research is widely recognized as a trusted care option.

The STARR Coalition is yours. It is a forum for the leaders in mental health clinical research, advocacy, treatment, and individuals being served to work together 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. It is our obligation to do what we can to improve the lives of those living with symptoms.

Join us. Be a part of great change. Lend you voice and your resources to help make the future better for those living with mental illnesses.
