Reprinting and Reusing NIMH Publications

National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) publications are in the public domain and may be reproduced or copied without permission from NIMH. NIMH encourages you to reproduce them and use them in your efforts to improve public health. Citation of NIMH as a source is appreciated. However, using government materials inappropriately can raise legal or ethical concerns, so we ask you to use these guidelines:

  • NIMH does not endorse or recommend any commercial products, processes, or services, and publications may not be used for advertising or endorsement purposes.
  • NIMH does not provide specific medical advice or treatment recommendations or referrals; these materials may not be used in a manner that has the appearance of such information.
  • NIMH requests that non-Federal organizations not alter publications in a way that will jeopardize the integrity and “brand” when using publications.
  • Addition of Non-Federal Government logos and website links may not have the appearance of NIMH endorsement of any specific commercial products or services or medical treatments or services.
  • Images used in publications are of models and are used for illustrative purposes only. Use of some images is restricted
