Date and Time

Virtual and in person at the National Archives Building (701 Constitution Avenue, NW, Washington, D.C.)


As part of its yearlong 75th Anniversary celebration, the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) is hosting its second symposium, “Amplifying Voices and Building Bridges: Toward a More Inclusive Future” (view the meeting agenda).

The symposium will focus on NIMH's role in society and feature presentations from health equity, sociology, psychiatry, and public health experts. It will bring together people living with mental illness, clinicians, and communities to reflect on past and present challenges in mental health research and chart a more inclusive path forward. 

Key themes include:

  • Inclusion in research
  • Disparities in health and access to care
  • Diversity in the mental health workforce


This symposium is free, and registration is required for both virtual and in-person attendance 

In-person attendance will be limited. You can join the symposium virtually if you cannot attend in person. A recording of the event will also be posted on the NIMH website.
