Emetophobia: Underresearched, Misunderstood and Undertreated

Emetophobia research study fundraiserMillions suffer from the often-debilitating fear known as emetophobia. Despite its prevalence, it is understudied and undertreated. You can help us change that!

Please donate to help us publish our much-needed research so treatment of this widespread, serious condition can move forward.

Donations of any amount are welcome and appreciated — and we’ve created special perks for donating $10, $25, $75 or $150.

Everyone who donates at least $10 will receive a very helpful guide for finding a therapist to treat emetophobia — even if the therapist doesn’t know what it is.
