We're an NIMH Outreach Partner!

The NIMH Outreach Partnership Program works to increase access to science-based mental health information through partnerships with national and state organizations. The Program encourages efforts to reach diverse racial and ethnic groups and strives to enhance opportunities for the public to benefit from participation in research.

The partnerships provide NIMH with the opportunity to engage community organizations in dialogue to better understand the needs, questions, and concerns of those intended to benefit from the research NIMH supports.
