The Human Givens Foundation (HGF) is a charity registered in England and Wales, Charity No. 1108432. Its objectives are to promote research and public education into the ‘givens’ of human nature and their application into the treatment and care of those suffering from mental illness.

The human givens approach gives us a larger frame of reference to work from and has enormous potential for unifying diverse strands of thinking in psychology

Dr Kevin Epps, Psychologist

It intends to foster initiatives by those endeavouring to use up-to-date knowledge about the givens of human nature in practical ways, particularly in fields where the development of life skills is vital: education, psychotherapy, health, social work, industrial relations and diplomacy.
