Mental Health Awareness

Otsuka in the U.S. has a proud tradition of a commitment to mental wellness. We support and collaborate with several organizations that share our same commitment to mental wellness. It gives us an opportunity to help cultivate awareness while reducing the stigma often associated with mental illness. Some of the mental health advocacy organizations we work with include:

  • National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI)
  • Mental Health America (MHA)
  • Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance (DBSA) 
  • National Council for Behavioral Health
  • Families for Depression Awareness

Natural Disasters

Otsuka is not just an innovative company; we’re also a family company. So, when there is a crisis, our instinct is to provide help. For example, when widespread flooding deluged parts of North and South Carolina as a result of Hurricane Joaquin, the damaging effects created unbearable living conditions for local residents, including members of our own Otsuka family of employees and their neighbors. Otsuka in the U.S. responded quickly with monetary donations to the local American Red Cross Chapters in the hardest hit regions. It helped them to provide aid in the form of thousands of meals, relief items and health and mental health services.
