"Our objective is to help people with mental illness lead fulfilling and productive lives."

-- Elyn Saks

The Saks Institute for Mental Health Law, Policy, and Ethics is a think tank dedicated to interdisciplinary and collaborative research among scholars and policymakers around issues of mental illness and mental health. As a research institute, the goal is to study issues at the intersection of law, mental health, and ethics as well as influence policy reform and advocacy actions for improved treatment of people with mental illness. Ultimately, an interdisciplinary approach to these important issues will promote a society of well-rounded persons who work with deep satisfaction and integrity and enjoy a clear mind.
