Started by families of children with neurodevelopmental disabilities, the UC Davis MIND Institute is a world-renowned collaborative translational research and clinical center committed to the awareness, understanding, prevention, and the treatment of the disabilities that can be associated with autism spectrum disorder, ADHD, fragile X syndrome, Down syndrome, and many rare genetic conditions.
This Give Day we hope you consider supporting the UC Davis MIND Institute challenges, including our new Lifeline Fund. A contribution to this fund will support accessibility to our world class service-based programs, including the Social Skills Program, ACCESS Program, ADHD Behavioral Parent Education Workshops, and our new virtual support group for neurodivergent girls, NeuroTeens, which are all focused on overcoming the challenges associated with neurodevelopmental disabilities.
Funds housed in the Lifeline Fund will be used to enhance and expand these and related programs or to cover the costs incurred by a family's participation in these programs.
Your gift – no matter the amount – will have a significant impact! The MIND Institute is committed to maximizing all Give Day donations to fuel transformational research, clinical care and educational programs that improve access and quality of care, increase understanding and awareness, develop effective therapies and support programs, and uncover vital information about causes and risk factors for neurodevelopmental disabilities. Thank you for your support!
