Clifford Beers Society

Clifford W. Beers logo and image of Clifford Beers with I must fight in the open language, along with 4 people posing with conference badges, MHA leaders Schroeder Stribling and former leader Paul Gionfriddo talking with another man, a woman holding a plate of food and smiling while people mingle behind her

Clifford Beers used those words to respond to critics who suggested he start his mental health movement anonymously. Over 100 years later, his legacy still guides the way as Mental Health America advances prevention for all; early identification and intervention for those at risk; integrated care, services, and supports for those who need them; with recovery as the goal.

Mental Health America created the Clifford Beers Society to honor the generous giving of our most ardent and committed supporters, both individuals and organizations. We invite you to "fight in the open" and become a member of the Clifford Beers Society.
