The National Institute of Mental Health has indicated that it intends to select the D.C. Behavioral Health Association as an outreach partner.

The Outreach Program works to increase the public’s access to science-based mental health information through partnerships with national and state nonprofit organizations. The Program has a particular emphasis on reaching historically underserved populations. The Program also strives to enhance opportunities for the public to benefit from participation in research. These partnerships provide NIMH with the opportunity to engage community organizations in dialogue to better understand the needs, questions, and concerns of those intended to benefit from the research the Institute supports.

DCBHA is pleased to have been selected and looks forward to partnering with the National Institute of Mental Health.
