Please Help!

Research funding for the ketogenic diet in psychiatry is limited. Even researchers who understand the science believe that the diet is too difficult to do, so it clearly won’t work. However, I know that people with chronic mental disorders CAN do this treatment and are desperate for a better solution. I need your help to fund the first randomized, controlled trial of the ketogenic diet for chronic mental illness! Please help support this work if you are able by clicking on the link below. McLean Hospital is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, so your gift is tax-deductible as allowed by law.
