Press Resources

NIMH's Press Team can provide access to researchers and guide you to the latest information and research on mental illnesses from NIMH. Team members can assist you in arranging interviews with NIMH researchers and in finding—and deciphering—statistics on mental illnesses, the latest scientific findings highlighted in our news section, consumer information and resources, and other topics related to our research portfolio.

We can be reached by phone or e-mail. Our office hours are Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. ET. If you call the office during non-work hours, please leave a voice message and a press officer will return your call as quickly as possible.
