NIMH Launches Twitter Account for Director

The National Institute of Mental Health has launched an official Twitter account—@NIMHDirector—for its director, Dr. Joshua Gordon. As the lead federal agency for research on mental disorders, NIMH established its enterprise Twitter account, @NIMHgov, in May 2009. It surpassed more than a million followers earlier this year.

“I’m hoping to make the most of this opportunity to share exciting new developments in mental health research,” said Gordon. “I understand the impact of social media and I’m eager to join the conversation on Twitter.”

Gordon joined NIMH in September 2016. Through Twitter, he plans to share his vision and priorities.
