THE MISSION

We are facing a crisis: nearly 1 in 4 children, teens, and young adults struggle with their mental health. But AIM is finding and funding the most promising research in the world and making an impact:

THE RESEARCH

Working with our world-class Scientific Advisory Board, we screen research from around the world, looking for work with the greatest promise of making a difference now. We’ve recently funded:

Treatments focusing on behavioral parent training and talk therapies addressing self-destructive and unhealthy behaviors are the most effective in quickly treating youth with severe irritability associated with emotional and behavior problems, according to first-year research funded by AIM.

The research is being conducted by Dr. Spencer Evans, a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Psychology at Harvard University. It focuses on 174 children, ages 5-8, with severe irritability and frequent aggressive, disruptive behavior.

Now AIM has made a grant of $65,580 to Dr. Evans for a second year of progress.
