WHO WE ARE
THE PIERRE DENIKER FOUNDATION, A PIONEER
The Foundation was created in 2007 by Professors Henri Lôo and Jean-Pierre Olié to support research and prevention in mental health. By choosing the name of Pierre Deniker, who discovered chlorpromazine in 1952, the first effective treatment against mental illness, the foundation places itself firmly in the tradition of the founder of the so-called Sainte-Anne school.
Humanism, courage, innovation and a deep commitment to serve people with mental illness are the values that determine how it defines its objectives.
