NAMI's Position on Federal Funding for Mental Illness Research

(Summarized from the NAMI Public Policy Platform)

Neuroscience research, behavioral research, pharmaceutical research, clinical research, as well as service system research are some of the initiatives supported by NAMI. To this end, NAMI endorses the Presidential proclamation of the 1990s as the Decade of the Brain, which calls upon Congress and the Executive Branch to focus more attention on research, treatment, education, and rehabilitation related to brain disorders and to appropriate funds sufficient to make that promise a reality. NAMI expects the rigor and pace of the field of services research to be equal to that of biomedical research.
