Welcome to The Brain Report.

We are excited to be developing a website based on the science of mental health, written for patients and their families, and filled with the humanity of all those involved in the field of mental health.

In just the last few years, major innovations in neuroscience have transformed our understanding of mental illness. However, the gap between the knowledge base and the information available to patients and their families remains a serious problem. This discrepancy contributes to the stigma surrounding mental illness, a stigma that causes unnecessary pain and suffering for patients and their caregivers and increases the burden on society.

We believe in the power of courage. Those who put a man on the moon did. Those who built the Eiffel Tower did. Those who pioneered the first vaccines did. Courage changes everything. It creates the opportunity to change lives today and transform tomorrow. Courage has led to the birth of The Brain Report, which will work to bridge the gap between rapidly expanding knowledge and the availability of timely and high quality information for patients.

The same courage helped me to get in to medical school and become a doctor, immigrate to the United States, study further at the world-renowned Cleveland Clinic, achieve six board certifications from the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology, start a private practice of psychiatry, help patients and teach other doctors. That courage has inspired the creation of The Brain Report with its ultimate purpose of helping many more people around the world. As the founder and editor-in-chief, I will serve with thoughtfulness, humility, and great care.

As Albert Einstein said, “Imagination is more powerful than knowledge.” We hope that our vision has rekindled your imagination as it has ours. We hope our efforts will bring opportunity, hope, and courage into the lives of patients with mental illness and their families.

EVERY LIFE IS PRECIOUS, AND EVERY PATIENT WITH MENTAL ILLNESS DESERVES THE BEST OPPORTUNITY TO ACHIEVE HIS OR HER FULL POTENTIAL. WE BELIEVE THAT THE EFFORTS OF DR. ANIL PARIKH AND THE BRAIN REPORT WILL TRANSFORM MANY LIVES FOR GENERATIONS TO COME AND WILL INSPIRE OTHERS TO FOLLOW IN THEIR FOOTSTEPS.
