National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) Outreach

New and better treatment, brought to you by clinical trials

Researchers at the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) and around the country conduct a large number of research studies with patients and healthy volunteers. We have new and better treatment options today because of what clinical trials uncovered years ago. Be part of tomorrow’s medical breakthroughs; talk to your doctor about clinical trials, their benefits and risks, and whether one is right for you.

“Clinical research trials are at the heart of all medical advances. Researchers enroll women, men, and children in clinical trials to test new ways to prevent, detect, or treat disease. Studies often enroll people with a specific disorder but some also accept people without health problems to provide baseline information on overall health.”
