Sage Patient Advocacy

Your experience moves us.

Our Patient Advocacy team is an important steward of our value to put people first. We are motivated every day by the needs and personal stories of people impacted by brain health disorders.

Our Approach

Sage Patient Advocacy’s goal is to be a trusted ally to the advocacy community, supporting efforts to reduce suffering and improve quality of life for those impacted by brain health disorders. This is why we seek the perspective of patients, care partners, and the community at large to shape the drug development process.

We work to help people impacted by brain health disorders by:

  • Understanding how brain health disorders affect lives
  • Raising awareness of their burden
  • Supporting efforts to close gaps in education and improve care
  • Advocating for patient access to innovative medicines and care
  • Infusing patient, family, and care partner perspectives into all aspects of our work

Our depression, neurology, and neuropsychiatry programs aim to address a wide range of brain health disorders where there is a need for additional treatment options. They include:

Depressive Disorders:

  • Postpartum depression
  • Major depressive disorder

Neurologic Disorders:

  • Dementia/disorders of cognitive function
  • Epilepsy
  • Essential tremor
  • Parkinson’s disease

Neuropsychiatric Disorders

  • Cognitive disorders
  • Huntington’s disease

Our Commitment to Patient Advocacy Organizations

Patient advocacy groups are vital, independent agents of change. They serve as patient champions that pursue the shared goal of reducing stigma associated with brain health disorders, providing education about symptoms and diagnosis, and helping patients to navigate pathways to optimal care.

Sage is committed to developing transparent and long-term relationships with advocacy groups. We acknowledge and respect all advocate perspectives, and value their individual contributions to the advocacy community.
