Your action is needed to advocate for increased government funding for severe mental illnesses research. Dr. Thomas Insel, Director of NIMH, is working to have the institute’s work reflect the best scientific opportunities to improve treatments for these brain disorders. Please take this opportunity to notify him of NAMI’s Research Task Force report—Roadmap to Recovery and Cure—and support his efforts to increase NIMH funding of research that will more quickly lead to improved treatments and cures for severe mental illnesses. Below is a sample letter for you to send to Dr. Insel on this issue. Thank you for your dedication to this important issue, and remember, the addition of a personal touch as to why research for mental illnesses is important to you can make this letter even more powerful!
