Organization:Open Excellence (Foundation for Excellence in Mental Health Care) 


As the new brand for the Foundation for Excellence in Mental Health Care, Open Excellence seeks to connect the passion of private philanthropy with the world’s top researchers and programs to bring recovery–based care and support to every community. The organization was founded on the principle that people experiencing distress should be treated as people first—not as diagnoses or cases. Its core beliefs revolve around the conviction that the current medical model of mental illness should be challenged in favor of a wellness model where the expectation is recovery rather than a lifetime of disability. 

Open Excellence links people from around the globe who share a common dedication to improving mental health outcomes through promising new programs. By relying less on medication and more on engaging families and communities, these programs empower individuals to create their own path to recovery. 

Open Excellence is currently structured on a community foundation model and encompasses a variety of initiatives and funds, including donor-advised funds. It is a convener of interested parties and a catalyst for positive change in the field. Supported through donations from individuals, corporations, foundations and legacy gifts, it engages in a broad scope of activity to advance independent research, innovative programs and its own initiatives. It has a staff of 4.5 FTEs and an annual budget of approximately $1 million. For more information about Open Excellence, visit their website at
