JBRF is a 501(c)(3) organization that actively promotes and supports scientific research focused on the cause of and treatments for bipolar disorder in children. We are the first and only non-profit foundation dedicated solely to promoting research to identify the source of early-onset bipolar disorder.
The foundation is guided by a remarkable board of directors. Our board is made up of committed parents, treating professionals and world class research investigators who fully recognize the life altering impact that this devastating condition exacts on affected children, their families and communities. We acknowledge the controversy and confusion that surrounds this diagnosis and we firmly believe that the most effective way to clarify the dialogue and find effective treatments is through targeted, science-based research.
