NIMH- Mental Health Matters

NIMH- Mental Health Matters

Magen Dow, Reporter

The National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) is the top federal research agency for mental health. It is apart of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, and is one of the 27 institutes that make of the National Institutes of Health (NIH). NIMH wants to better understand on how to treat mental illnesses, and, “envisions a world in which mental illnesses are prevented and cured.” Their mission is to, “transform the understanding and treatment of mental illnesses through basic and clinical research, paving the way for prevention, recovery and cure.” With having personally in the past having poor mental health due to outside conditions, NIMH gives me hope, and hopefully for others. So if you are struggling with anxiety, depression, etc., just know you are not alone, and you matter. For more information on NIMH, you can go to their website at tagged below.
