Our Story

Hi, I’m Dr. Daniel Amen. I’m a child and adult psychiatrist, brain health expert, and 12-time New York Times bestselling author. Over more than three decades, my team and I at Amen Clinics have been helped over 100,000 patients overcome depression, anxiety, ADHD, memory loss, and so much more.

Many of my patients told me they wanted support and resources they can use at home as part of their ongoing healing journey. And there are also millions of other people who are struggling with mental health issues but aren’t able to come to our clinics or would simply prefer to learn in private.

That’s why I created Amen University in YEAR.

I wanted to help as many people as possible, because nobody should live their life feeling chronically depressed, anxious, unfocused, or forgetful. People of all ages deserve to feel happier, calmer, more motivated, and mentally sharper. And based on our groundbreaking brain-imaging work, I’ve learned that it all starts with the brain.

So, I took everything we’ve learned from more than 30 years of using brain SPECT imaging in clinical practice and created online mental health courses that really work. You’ll find the most effective strategies and tools—the same ones I use with my patients—at the click of a button. It makes it so much easier to start feeling better.
