Who we are

The Michigan Psychoanalytic Foundation (MPF), a 501(c)3 organization, was established in 1987 to provide financial support for the Michigan Psychoanalytic Institute (MPI), also a 501(c)3 organization.

MPI offers specialized training for mental health professionals in psychoanalysis and psychotherapy. MPI’s advanced educational opportunities reach thousands of professionals not only in Southeastern Michigan, but also in other states and countries. The lives of thousands of people have been enhanced by the application of psychoanalytic principals in treatment, training, research and consultation. Our faculty of over 90 psychoanalysts and educators consult extensively on a volunteer basis at area universities, clinics, and agencies.

Support Psychoanalysis with a Donation

By making a donation to the Foundation, you help support us in making psychoanalytic ideas and understanding accessible to the interested public.  Your donation will help ensure that educators, scholars, students and others have access to thoughtful, reliable information on mental health issues.

The Michigan Psychoanalytic Institute is an IRS 501(c)(3) organization, and receives no government funding.  Our programs are funded through tuition, membership dues, and generous donations from supporters in the community who value the contributions psychoanalysis has made to the intellectual discourse and the application of psychoanalytic understanding to aspects of everyday life. All of our faculty, program directors, and officers are volunteers.

Your donation is tax-deductible to the extent provided by law.  Donations of any amount are most welcome, and can be earmarked for any program area of particular interest to the donor.
