General Information on Wellness NIMH Outreach Partnership Program including NIDA
The NIMH Outreach Partnership Program is a nationwide initiative of the NIMH partnership with the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) and National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) that enlists national and state organizations to help bridge the gap between research and clinical practice by disseminating the latest scientific findings, informing the public about mental illnesses.
The program strives to increase public awareness at the state and local level about the importance of basic and clinical research in improving treatments for, and ultimately curing, mental illnesses and addiction disorders through advancing knowledge about the brain and behavior. The objectives are to improve the identification, diagnosis, and treatment of mental illnesses, and alleviate the effects of co-occurring alcoholism and other substance abuse among all Americans-including underserved populations such as racial or ethnic minority groups, children, older adults and people living in rural areas.
