NAMI Utah has been selected as the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) Outreach Partner for 2015 for the state of Utah. NAMI Utah joins a nationwide network of 55 mental health organizations committed to disseminating science-based information from NIMH about the causes, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of mental disorders, and educating the public about the importance of research and the opportunities to participate in studies.
For over a decade, NIMH has supported organizations from every state, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico through the Outreach Partnership Program to increase the public’s awareness about the importance of mental health to overall health as well as the recognition that mental disorders are brain-based disorders, and that research is the way forward to understanding how best to treat, prevent, and ultimately cure mental illness.
NAMI Utah recognizes the importance of NIMH research and is honored to be an Outreach Partner. Look for important updates including information about current NIMH clinical trials on our website: www.namiut.org and our Facebook page.
The National Institute of Mental Health is one of 27 components of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the Federal government's principal biomedical and behavioral research agency. NIMH is part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
