Child Mind Institute is an independent, national nonprofit dedicated to transforming the lives of children and families struggling with mental health and learning disorders. CMI is headquartered in New York City and recently established a new clinical center in the SF Bay Area. Founded in 2009 by preeminent medical, business and philanthropic leaders, CMI is committed to open sharing and does not accept funding from the pharmaceutical industry.
CMI’s dedicated teams advance the science of the developing brain through cutting-edge research and open sharing; provide education, teaching, and community awareness programming; and operate a private clinical service that offers gold-standard, evidence-based care provided by exceptionally trained and skilled psychiatrists, psychologists, master’s prepared therapists, and other supporting disciplines.
In its first decade, CMI grew from a single site in Manhattan into a national catalyst for advancing children’s mental health with more than 80 clinicians, 260 staff, nationally leading research programs, and robust engagement and support from leading corporations, foundations, celebrities, media organizations, and philanthropists. CMI offers school and community programs in over 300 schools. Childmind.org, which offers useful, accurate information that empowers families and communities to get help, has had over 50 million visitors.
