The National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) Recommend to a Friend... 
The National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) is the largest scientific organization in the world dedicated to research focused on the understanding, treatment, and prevention of mental disorders and the promotion of mental health.

  

Vision

NIMH supports innovative science that will profoundly transform the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of mental disorders, paving the way for a cure.

 

Mission

The NIMH mission is to reduce the burden of mental illness and behavioral disorders through research on mind, brain, and behavior. To fulfill its mission, the Institute is committed to the following priorities:

  • support the integrative science of brain and behavior providing the foundation for understanding mental disorders;
  • define the genetic and environmental risk architecture of mental disorders;
  • develop more reliable, valid diagnostic tests and biomarkers for mental disorders;
  • develop more effective, safer, and equitable treatments that have minimal side-effects to reduce symptoms, and improve daily functioning;
  • support clinical trials that will provide treatment options to deliver more effective personalized care across diverse populations and settings; and
  • create improved pathways for rapid dissemination of science to mental health care and service efforts.

To reach these goals, the NIMH divisions and programs are designed to emphasize translational research spanning bench, to bedside, to practice.
