Imagine: Your contribution leads to real progress
Contributions of any kind are welcome - whatever could lead to making a real difference in the lives of those who suffer (directly or indirectly). In this space, even a small contribution has the potential to make a huge difference.
Before contributing – Please consider
- What are the implications of the current situation for me, my family, friends and/or society as a whole?
- What is it I find most disappointing with the current situation?
We invite you to let us know what your specific contribution will be. That can be through the forum (see menu) or an email. Following are some suggestions. Before you start an activity, consider one of the lessons we learned: Being for something is far more effective than merely presenting the facts or being against something.
Potential contributions – Some ideas
- Getting from "Why can't a treatment work?" to "What does work?" and creating balance between the two
- Creating balance between conflicting views - Too often, a negative detail diverts the attention from the blatant benefits of a treatment.
- Making a donation
- Making the brochure available locally
- Reporting improvement needs for this webpage or our approach
- Creating a stronger case for action by collecting and publishing breakthrough treatment experiences
- Finding and addressing research gaps
- As a possibility to make breakthrough progress
- As a possibility to reduce harmful animal research drastically
- Making donations with a specific requirement, such as:
- Only for research, with the top priority being to identify breakthrough treatments
- Non-harmful research comes first
- The use of new, open research models
- Creating harmony between hard scientific proof requirements and changed patient expectations (see also the main challenge above)
- Identifying and addressing the patient's/client's priorities
- Sharing your creativity and knowledge in the On Mental Health forum (see menu). Be co-creator of results.
- Creating a debate on whether some undiscovered fundamentals are standing in the way of getting to the real breakthroughs in brain research
- Creating a research environment that encourages non-harmful, out-of-the-box innovation beyond today's practices
- Starting an initiative with some friends
