Since 1962, we have led transformations in the mental health field, from our roots as a psychiatry residency program, to refining mental health informatics, enhancing cognitive rehabilitation therapies for U.S. military members with brain injury, and the discovery of novel biomarkers in clinical neuroscience.
Our mission is to improve and transform mental health outcomes through innovative research and program development, program evaluation, community outreach, and professional training.
MIMH, based in Missouri, works closely with partners in 15 countries across 4 continents. We work to diminish the impact of AIDS, aging, mental health stigma, substance use, PTSD and other critical health issues around the world.
