This redesigned NIMH website has a new look and feel but the fundamental goal remains the same: to make it easy for you to find health information about mental disorders, explore research activities and get the latest news from NIMH scientists and grantees. Easier access to vital information about the NIMH mission-- that’s the goal of the redesigned NIMH website. We hope you enjoy the new look!
