Mission Forgotten: The Failure of the National Institute of Mental Health to Do Sufficient Research on Severe Mental Illnesses
E. Fuller Torrey (au)
The Nat. Inst. of Mental Health (NIMH) was conceived for the purpose of doing research on severe mental illnesses. More recently, many analysts and policymakers have recognized the need for the NIH, including NIMH, to better match its research investments to the public health needs of the nation. An analysis of the research portfolio of NIMH was carried out by a 5-person review committee. A total of 2,277 research grant abstracts for FY 1997 were rated. This report discusses the major findings, which show that NIMH has failed in its primary mission to support research on those illnesses posing the greatest public health burden -- severe mental illnesses. Seven recommendations are made to help NIMH return to its originally intended mission.
