Monthly Spotlight: The National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH)

By Michelle Lunger

Last month, we educated you about some of the different mental illnesses and talked about the importance of mental health education. This month, to further the understanding and advocate for the treatment of mental illnesses we are giving the spotlight to The National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH). NIMH is the lead federal agency for research on mental health disorders. It is one of 27 institutes and centers that make up the National Institutes of Health (NIH) which is the largest biomedical research agency in the world. NIH is also a part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. To continue and expand your knowledge about the different mental illnesses, NIMH also provides excellent and credible information and research on their site. NIMH’s strategic plan for research is to accelerate the pace of scientific progress and transform mental health care. At Ride The Wave, we share the same vision in regards to research about mental disorders. There is still a stigma about the different disorders and still so much to be learned. Whether you or your loved ones have a mental illness or not, it is still important to learn more about mental health in general because it is universal. Everyone has mental health, just as everyone has physical health. Join us to continually support the National Institute of Mental Health in their research, education, and advocacy!
