Hope is here
We are in the midst of a global mental health crisis.
At Open Excellence, we fund independent research and innovative programs that are revolutionizing mental health outcomes.
Join us on our mission to create mental health care excellence for all.
Falling Through The Cracks
Our current mental healthcare system is failing us. There’s an over-reliance on pharmaceuticals, while many who are suffering complex challenges are not getting the help they need.
Tragically, mental health challenges remain a deeply misunderstood aspect of the human experience.
We Can Be Better, Together
Our community of people with lived experience, philanthropists, scientists, innovators and care providers are committed to revolutionizing mental health outcomes.
We invite you to join our mission to create better mental healthcare for all.
Imagine mental healthcare that honors the human experience and strives to cultivate our wellbeing. Imagine a world where all people have access to the care and support they need to achieve their potential.
This is what we are creating together. Will you join us?
