Why The STARR?

Cutting-edge research is embraced by patients, advocacy and society for many indications including cancer, diabetes, heart disease, ALS and many rare diseases. What about mental health?

It is not the same. Our stakeholders have identified one predominant challenge; stigma. Stigma with mental illness and stigma associated with clinical research. The only way to overcome this obstacle is education and communication.

With 1 in 5 Americans struggling with some form of mental illness, it is our moral and ethical responsibility to work together to find new therapies to alleviate the symptoms associated with central nervous system disorders. Research offers everyone hope and cures.
