The mission of the Mental Illness Research Association is to improve the lives of people with brain disorders by presenting student, teacher, and counselor education programs which lead to increased treatment and decreased stigma; and by supporting service and research communities focused on improved treatment and cures.
Who We Are
The Mental Illness Research Association is a Michigan based not for profit, 501(c)(3), tax exempt organization. MIRA has a rich history in mental illness research, with a primary focus on finding both physical and tangible variables to mental illness. Today our primary focus is to both educate and de-stigmatize through our education program. We fully support our education program with funds raised through our annual events. With a voluntary president and board, we are able to put more of your fundraising dollars back into our mission. When you support MIRA you support the destigmatization of mental illness while helping to raise awareness, acceptance and community support through education.Learn More
