NIMH Conference Explores Mental Health Services Research
In August, the National Institute of Mental Health is hosting the 24th Mental Health Services Research (MHSR) Conference with the theme: What’s the Next Big Thing? MHSR is organized every other year by NIMH’s Services Research and Clinical Epidemiology Branch. It aims to promote high-priority areas in mental health services research and identify opportunities with potential for significant impact for people with mental disorders.
MHSR is the nation’s premier mental health services research conference. It brings together leading mental health services researchers, clinicians, mental health advocates and federal and non-federal partners. This year, MHSR will feature state-of-the-art research presented via keynote speakers, thematic panels, discussion groups, papers and posters.
“MHSR is an opportunity to collaborate and network with peers, learn from experts and discuss the latest research in mental health services—research that is crucial to closing the science-to-service delivery gap,” said Dr. Michael Freed, one of the conference co-chairs. “This year’s conference will focus on what is driving today’s research and how the latest findings can help make a positive impact on the health and well-being of people with mental disorders.”
Services research aims to improve access, continuity, quality, equity and value of mental health care and it includes the science of dissemination and implementation—a mission crucial to closing the science-to-service delivery gap.
