Alkermes strives to build long-term, meaningful, sustainable partnerships based on mutual goals that improve the health and lives of people affected by serious central nervous system illnesses and, ultimately, strengthen communities. To that end, Alkermes provides funding through educational and patient support program grants, charitable contributions, sponsorships, and corporate memberships.
Alkermes believes that education is vital for those affected by mental illness and their caregivers. We are proud to support efforts that raise awareness in mental health and addiction. We expect to contribute to a better understanding of the treatment in a broader sense including psychosocial methods as well as medications. We are also focused on programs that enable access to care and facilitate early intervention.
Alkermes understands that providing treatment options is only part of the equation when it comes to meeting the needs of those affected by mental illness and their caregivers. That is why we are committed to funding programs focused on patient and caregiver support and services. Programs may include ways to encourage those affected to seek help, without a fear of the stigma associated with mental illness and addiction. Other services may focus on caregiver support and continuity of care among healthcare providers.
While Alkermes’ main focus is supporting those affected by mental illness and addition, we do occasionally support community or public health programs aligned with the company’s mission and values. We also provide donations to disaster relief efforts or other humanitarian causes on a case by case basis.
Alkermes is proud to be part of the mental illness and addiction healthcare community. We strive to do our part by supporting groups and organizations in our community with their events such as meetings, health fairs, walks and fundraisers.
Alkermes works to foster and maintain collaborative relationships with health-related and public policy organizations through corporate memberships.
