The number of people suffering from depression and anxiety is increasing. The incidence of stroke and Alzheimer's disease is also on the rise, and early evidence suggests a link between COVID-19 and neurological complications.
For all these reasons and more, the need for more effective, accessible treatments and therapies for neurological diseases and behavioral disorders is becoming increasingly urgent.
For years, UTHealth has put time, resources, and our best and brightest minds to work in this space: pursuing discovery, clinical, and translational research and offering patients access to the latest treatments and therapies. It's time to build on the progress we've made—for the benefit of our community and for patients everywhere.
Your support of Many Faces. One Mission. will help us become the region’s leading center for brain and behavioral health, dedicated to discovering better treatments for chronic and acute neurological conditions and making mental health care accessible to all.
