At Otsuka, we hold a deep respect for the value of every mind. The human mind is inspiring, fostering imagination, intelligence, perception, and so much more. We recognize the inherent value in every mind, and in doing so, we know we can change the trajectory of people’s lives. That's why we will not rest until mental illness is approached with the same priority and urgency as our physical health, and recognized as chronic diseases that warrant early, equitable and accessible intervention. Through products, programs, policies, and advocacy, Otsuka-people persevere every day to defy limitation on behalf of the valuable minds we serve.
When we realize that every mind is valuable, we create a world where no mind is limited.
