Purpose:

Since 1932 Mental Health has been a major focus at the Ittleson
Foundation. The Foundation continues its commitment to bringing its
“venture capital” approach to philanthropy to this
area. In addition to our historic commitment to addressing the
needs of underserved populations, we are particularly interested in
innovative, pilot, model and demonstration projects that are:



  • fighting the stigma associated with mental illness and working
    to change the public’s negative perception of people who have
    mental illness

  • utilizing new knowledge and current technological advances to
    improve programs and services for people who have mental
    illness

  • bringing the full benefits of this new knowledge and technology
    to those who presently do not have access to them

  • advancing preventative mental health efforts, especially those
    targeted to youth and adolescents, with a special focus on
    strategies that involve parents, teachers, and others in close
    contact with these populations
