About Us

Mentor Research Institute (MRI) is a 501c3 consumer protection information and research program that has been in existence since 1995. The Board of Directors currently consists of four psychologists, and two business people.  The Board is a “working board”.  The directors create, pursue and support MRI projects. 

MRI Board members donate both time and resources to MRI activities. MRI consults with advisors from the professional and lay community to inform decisions and project plans.

Current Programs of Mentor Research Institute

Internet Mental Health Consumer Information and Protection

MRI recognized the importance of the Internet early. We were among the first organizations to explore the Web as resource to support consumers and referral to professional services. MRI accomplished and learned a lot with volunteer efforts and no funding. We pioneered the use of the Web and people followed and improved on our examples. MRI is a recognized national resource in specific domains of consumer protection.

 

Professional Education Projects

The objective of educating families about changes in mental health services delivery led MRI to create programs designed to educate professionals about similar changes. MRI applied for and was approved by the American Psychological Association to provide continuing education for psychologists. Other mental health professional organizations acknowledge this continuing education approval.  MRI presents professional education events and collaborates with other organizations to provide continuing education for professionals.
