We get a lot of questions. Here are answers to our most popular.

Your Support Matters

Nothing makes us happier than to see our research findings put into practice in schools, in healthcare and at worksites. We hear daily from people like you how this research has changed their lives by taking the insights and practices we provide and creating a kinder, wiser, more compassionate world. 

The Center for Healthy Minds’ greatest need is funding that will enable us to build the capacity necessary to accelerate scientific discoveries that will benefit generations to come.

Why I Give

Tim Erdman Web

“The idea of a more compassionate world is obviously idealistic, but it does start with individual people. Compassion is a human trait that is deep-seated and part of our evolution. I believe we can improve the world through the Center’s work and sharing the idea that compassion is a survival skill.”

Tim Erdman
