The Danny H. Alberts Foundation is an endowed fund that seeks to positively impact the lives of those who suffer from bipolar disorder. The primary purpose of the fund is to provide financial support for promising new research for the treatment of bipolar disorder. The focus of the funds over the last few years has been on supporting Dr. Miklowitz's cutting-edge research in applying mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT) for persons with bipolar disorder. The overriding objective of this research, being conducted at UCLA and previously at the University of Colorado, Boulder, is to develop and test new psychological treatments to be used with medications to prevent depressive and manic relapse, prevent suicidality, and improve quality of life. This program did not exist prior to the Danny H. Alberts Foundation awards, and shows great promise as a treatment for depression and suicidality among bipolar patients (for journal article, click here ).
More recently, the foundation expanded its scope in funding a collaboration between the UCLA Department of Psychiatry and the University of Colorado's Department of Psychology, with a focus on women with bipolar disorder and major depression who are pregnant, planning pregnancy, or have given birth recently.
The Danny H. Alberts Foundation accepts charitable contributions as a component fund of the Community Foundation of Northern Colorado. Those individuals and corporations who share a commitment to making substantial improvements in the treatment of individuals who suffer from bipolar disorder can make tax-free contributions to the fund through the Community Foundation of Northern Colorado:
