Public Involvement at NIMH
NIMH Activities with Interested Constituent Organizations
NIMH values opportunities to engage in dialogue with the advocacy community whose members act as advisors, educators, fund raisers, practice association leaders, and public policy advocates. The NIMH Office of Communications Relations and Public Liaison (OCRPL) coordinates several programs that provide mental health research stakeholders the means to offer feedback on NIMH's priorities and initiatives:
NIMH Professional Coalition for Research Progress
Learn about the Coalition, a group of senior leaders and representatives from national professional organizations, convened to share information NIMH research advances and foster dialogue on the future directions of NIMH-funded research.
NIMH Alliance for Research Progress
Read summaries from previous Alliance meetings which bring together leaders from national mental health-related organizations representing and advocating for patients and their families.
See NIMH constituent organizations that participate in the Coalition and Alliance.
