Our research, rooted in neuroscience, asks one basic question: What constitutes a healthy mind?

About Us

Founded by world renowned neuroscientist Dr. Richard J. Davidson, the Center for Healthy Minds envisions a kinder, wiser, more compassionate world.

Our mission is to cultivate well-being and relieve suffering through a scientific understanding of the mind.

Groundbreaking Research with
Real-World Impact

We explore well-being across the lifespan – from pregnancy to old age – and in various settings, from schools to police departments.

I envision a day when mental exercise will be as much a part of our daily lives as physical exercise and personal hygiene.

Center Founder and Director

Well-Being is a Skill

For us, well-being is more than a buzzword. The more we understand ourselves and our emotions, the more we can do to create a kinder, wiser, more compassionate world. In partnership with an affiliated, external nonprofit Healthy Minds Innovations, we build tools to improve well-being in the workplace, schools and beyond.
