OUR MISSION

We are facing a crisis: nearly 1 in 4 children, teens, and young adults struggle with their mental health.

So AIM is finding and funding the most promising youth mental health research in the world, while building a movement devoted to the mental health of children, teens, and young adults.

With our world-class Scientific Advisory Board, we screen research from across the globe, looking for work with the greatest promise of making a difference now.
