Country of origin: UK

Founded in 1981, the National Alliance for Research on Schizophrenia and Depression (NARSAD) is a not-for-profit public charity that is primarily concerned with raising funds for the purpose of researching severe psychiatric disorders. Since its inception, they have awarded over $180 million in grants to a variety of research institutions.

On their website visitors can review information about the research supported by their fundraising. For most visitors the most valuable section of the site will be the ?Disorders & Conditions? area. Here they can view a number of fact sheets that provide a basic background on a host of conditions, including bipolar disorder, autism, and suicide.

The Research Center area contains information about applying for grants from NARSAD and also provides profiles of researchers in the field. The site also hosts an archive of their in-house quarterly newsletter dating back to 2000.
