Suicide is a growing public health concern. One of the top priorities at NIMH is to conduct research aimed at reversing the increasing national suicide rate. The goal of NIMH’s efforts is not only to identify at-risk individuals but to help them to improve their quality of life and to prevent suicide attempts.
NIMH is committed to research training and career development that prepares individuals to conduct innovative research in areas of program relevance that will advance the mission of the Institute.
Many important medical advances trace back to basic research. NIMH funds hundreds of projects focused on discovering how the brain works and how it develops. The path to prevention, diagnosis, and treatment for mental disorders starts with basic science.
