National Institute of Mental Health Announces New Outreach Partners
When: January 6, 2012
Institute: National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH)
NIMH has selected 28 nonprofit organizations as new partners for its Outreach Partnership Program, a national outreach and education initiative. Outreach Partners work with NIMH to disseminate the latest mental health-related research findings within their states and local communities, to inform the public about mental disorders, and to help reduce the stigma and discrimination associated with mental illness. They are selected through a competitive expert peer review process. The program now includes partners representing each state, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico.
