Michigan Psychoanalytic Foundation

A non-profit foundation supporting the mission of the Michigan Psychoanalytic Institute, standing for excellence in psychoanalytic education and treatment.
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). The Michigan Psychoanalytic Institute, also a 501(c)3 organization, is fully approved by the American Psychoanalytic Association and a member of the American Association of Psychoanalytic Education. Since 1957, MPI has been training mental health professionals in psychoanalysis in order to more effectively address the mental health needs of our communities. The lives of thousands of people have been enhanced by the application of psychoanalytic principals in treatment, training, research and consultation.

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.

Our faculty of over 90 psychoanalysts and educators consult extensively on a volunteer basis at area universities, clinics, and agencies.

The Mel Bornstein Clinic for Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy is a nonprofit 501(c)3 corporation that is a Supporting Organization of MPI. It has been legally structured to be administratively and financially separate from MPI, though with cooperation and information sharing between the two entities. Blue Cross Blue Shield, Magellan and United Behavioral Health insurances are accepted, with approval for several other insurances pending. Reduced fees can be supplemented by the Clinic’s Grant Fund based on established financial need.

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.

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.
