National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH)

Content

The Clinical Trials page gives detailed background on participating in mental health clinical research and specifically on taking part in clinical research studies at the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The studies are divided into NIMH Intramural Research Protocols (NIH Campus) and NIMH Extramural Research Protocols. The former – although not all controlled trials – are sub-divided into:

Anxiety disorder research
Behavioral endocrinology clinical
studies (including perimenopausal
and menopausal studies)
Childhood mental illness
Childhood-onset schizophrenia
survey
Children with attention deficit
hyperactivity disorder

Children with a recent onset of
obsessive compulsive disorder
or Tourette’s syndrome
Genetic studies
Mental health problems in the elderly
PANDAS (pediatric autoimmune
neuropsychiatric disorders
associated with streptococcus)

The extramural trials cover subjects including panic disorder, bipolar (manic-depressive) disorder and depression.

There is an important link to the NIMH Clinical Studies at the Clinical Center site which selects records of approximately 70 protocols of NIMH studies that are actively recruiting patients. Each record gives a summary and additional information about the trial, including contact details. There is also a link to the NIH Clinical Trials Database ClinicalTrials.gov. There may be some overlap.

The National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) conducts and supports research throughout the US on mental illness and mental health, including studies of the brain, behavior, and mental health services. NIMH is a part of the National Institutes of Health, the principal biomedical and behavioral research agency of the United States Government.

Other information available

There are links to other databases for additional NIMH supported clinical studies, including the AIDS Clinical Trials Database (ACTIS), Alzheimer’s Disease Clinical Trials Database and Rare Diseases Clinical Research Database. Other sections of the site provide information on publications, news, events, and education material for the public, practitioners and researchers.

The NIMH site has its own keyword search; both the Clinical Studies at the NIH Clinical Center listings and the ClinicalTrials.gov website have extensive search facilities. The NIMH Clinical Trials page was last updated in March 2000.
