Ortho was founded in 1924 by a small group of individuals with a shared interest in providing a common meeting ground for those engaged in the study and treatment of problems in human behavior. To reflect the interdisciplinary approach of the organization and their work, such as redirecting youth development in a positive direction, they combined the prefix "Ortho" (from the Greek "to straighten") with "psychiatry." Today, Ortho continues to attract professionals from psychology, psychiatry, social work, sociology, nursing, and law who are concerned about the application of mental health research to the creation of humane social policy, the improvement of mental health practice in a manner consistent with human rights, and the prevention of mental health problems.
