Healthy Brain Network™
The Healthy Brain Network is an unprecedented initiative by the Child Mind Institute to bring scientists, clinicians, and families together to reimagine brain science, accelerate our understanding of healthy brain development, and create objective diagnostic tools for psychiatric and learning disorders.

Participate in a Study
The Child Mind Institute invites all children with and without psychiatric disorders, as well as members of their families, to help build the science of healthy brain development. Join our initiative to find biomarkers of psychiatric and learning disorders—and, in turn, improve diagnosis and treatments.
What to Expect
The Child Mind Institute is honored to care for your child and your family. Our goal is to give you the best possible outcome and experience.

Innovation in Treatment
One of the major goals of the Child Mind Institute is the development of new and more effective evidence-based treatments.
Our teacher-child interaction training (TCIT) aims to enable teachers with classroom management skills to better address disruptive behaviors and create more time for learning. Currently we are conducting a study in three New York City schools to examine the effectiveness of TCIT.
Help us advance the science of healthy brain development and discover new diagnostic tools and treatments that will improve the lives of our children and grandchildren.
