The data from NIMH-supported clinical trials are an important scientific resource. It is the view of NIMH that their full value can only be realized if they are made available, under appropriate terms and conditions, in a timely manner to the wider scientific community, provided that the confidentiality and privacy of study participants are protected.
NIMH requires all investigators seeking access to data from NIMH-supported trials held by NIMH to execute and submit as their request the appropriate Data Use Certification pertaining to the trial. The datasets distributed by NIMH are referred to as "limited access datasets" because access is limited to qualified researchers who complete Data Use Certifications. The current listing of these datasets may be found on the Available Limited Access Datasets From NIMH Clinical Trials page.
