Mission

Psychological challenges affect nearly 450 million or one out of every four individual around the world. Yet the topic of mental health is still an enigma. Many people touched by these difficulties avoid intervention because of lack of information, lack of accessible resources, lack of funds, and most significantly because of stigmatization and discrimination. At Infinite Potential Central (IPC), our goals are to inform, encourage and empower. Specifically, we want to:

  • Make the discussion of psychological health similar to the way that of physical health – since they ARE intertwined and interdependent.
  • Provide accurate and comprehensive mental health information and break through the stigma and the discrimination associated with psychological challenges.
  • Encourage public and private parity in research funding surrounding psychological issues.
  • Advocate for uniformity of insurance coverage regardless of the nature of the condition.
  • Draw attention to environmental factors such as the importance of parenting and family dynamics.
  • Highlight current preventive efforts.
  • Encourage collaborations, integration, and coordination among mental health professionals, services, and resources.
  • Connect the public to the existing public and private mental health information and services in a comprehensive and seamless fashion.
