Mental health care is EVERYONE’S concern.

Little Orange Fish was founded to support the premise that every individual can benefit from and deserves access to quality mental health care.

The vision is that through research and education, better quality mental health care with a greater continuity of care can be made accessible to all. Realizing this vision will do much more than save lives by reducing acts of violence and self harm. It will also greatly enhance the quality of life for the tens of millions in the US, and the hundreds of millions world wide, who suffer in silence from a variety of emotional and mental health issues.
