NAMI Official Partners

NIMH Outreach Partnership

NAMI Minnesota is in its third year of being an  National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) Outreach Partner, after first being selected in 2015.  NAMI Minnesota joins a nationwide network of 55 mental health organizations committed to disseminating science-based information from NIMH about the causes, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of mental disorders, and educating the public about the importance of research and the opportunities to participate in studies.

For over a decade, NIMH has supported organizations from every state, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico through the Outreach Partnership Program to increase the public’s awareness about the importance of mental health to overall health as well as the recognition that mental disorders are brain-based disorders, and that research is the way forward to understanding how best to treat, prevent, and ultimately cure mental illness.
