    KEY TAKEAWAYS:

  • Americans are becoming more open about mental health, and young generations understand the importance of philanthropic activities that support mental health concerns. 
  • Often as a philanthropist, it’s easier to donate to your local university or to local nonprofits that are using innovative approaches. 
  • More philanthropists are always welcome in the world: bring in your expertise, bring in your curiosity, and bring in your money.
  • Thanks to research, you can now intervene earlier when somebody is starting to show some symptoms of mental health decline. For instance, the onset of depression may occur eight years before significant interventions are necessary.
