Mission Statement

Founded by Daniel G. Amen, MD in 2008, the Change Your Brain Change Your Life Foundation is dedicated to brain imaging research to change how psychiatric medicine is practiced; Amen method services for people who cannot afford them and brain health education for all. Based on his 30 years of experience using brain imaging tools, Dr. Amen knows you are not stuck with the brain you have, you can make it better, which drives the day-to-day work of our foundation.



Change how Psychiatric Medicine is practiced Worldwide
We commit to the goal of doing high-quality research to demonstrate how neuroimaging techniques, such as SPECT and QEEG, can enhance diagnosis and guide treatment to change the way psychiatry is practiced. We aim to create a society where brain health is addressed as routinely as any other organ in the body.

Educate that brain health is central to all health and success
We will strive to educate the American population about brain health through educational courses and public television programs. If the general public develops a deeper understanding of brain health it will help prevent mental health challenges, and even Alzheimer’s disease, and improve their epigenetic stories. We want everyone to embrace brain-healthy habits to improve the overall health of America.

Provide Services to those in need using the Amen Clinics Method
We commit to the goal of funding 50 psychiatric evaluations, including neuroimaging and supplements for people who need help but are unable to afford it. By extending these services, we not only help those directly receiving the services but we also indirectly help those they touch.
