DIRECTOR’S BLOG POSTING: TAKING CLINICAL RESEARCH TO THE NEXT LEVEL

Pin It

Last year, NIMH asked its National Mental Health Advisory Council to help the Institute consider how it could best develop new interventions. A workgroup of the Council met through the winter to discuss opportunities and challenges in treatment development. To inform the process, they developed a report, From Discovery to Cure: Accelerating the Development of New and Personalized Interventions for Mental Illness. Among their many suggestions was: (a) a call to develop the next generation of interventions, based on a better understanding of the disorders and (b) a call to optimize the use of current treatments based on a better understanding of individual differences in response.
