Our Mission: To end the autism epidemic by promoting environmental research and effective treatments.

We envision a world where people with autism are safe, healthy, and full participants in life, and the development of moderate to severe autism can be prevented.

We are dedicated to eliminating "I Don't Know" from medical professionals' vocabulary when it comes to the causation of autism and the treatment of its many co-occurring conditions, from gastrointestinal disease and seizure disorders to wandering behaviors and suicidal ideation. Please join us to save and improve lives now.

Autism prevalence has increased from 1 in 500 in 1995 to 1 in 59 today. SafeMinds is focused on identifying the environmental factors that have contributed to the increase in autism prevalence, finding treatments for commonly co-occurring medical conditions with autism, and researching how to prevent the development of autism. Learn more about these topics and how you can get involved.

Supporting SafeMinds ensures we can continue to promote research that gets at the heart of the exponential rise in autism prevalence since 1990s, educate stakeholders on the latest developments, and advocate for changes that will increase the effectiveness and accountability of the Federal agencies responsible for overseeing the autism community's needs.

Advocacy

The U.S. Government has ducked its responsibility to find the causes of and treatments for autism and to fund even the minimum of services for this burgeoning, high need group. Meanwhile, autism prevalence has skyrocketed. People with autism have a decreased life expectancy, more medical costs, few jobs, and few places to live. Join us in creating an accountable Federal Autism Strategic Plan that will make a real difference. One step at a time, one action at a time, leads to victory.
