NAMI Hosting Free, Virtual Inspiring Hope Through Research Event

Oct 20, 2020

Every year at the Inspiring Hope Through Research event, NAMI honors the work of researchers who move our scientific understanding and treatment of mental illness forward. This year’s award honoree, Dr. David C. Henderson, is the Psychiatrist-in-Chief at Boston Medical Center and Professor and Chair of Psychiatry at Boston University School of Medicine. He is also co-director of the NIMH T32 Boston University School of Medicine/Massachusetts General Hospital Global Mental Health Clinical Research Fellowship.

Scientific research brings us closer to a time when everyone affected by mental health conditions will be able to get the help, support and resources they need. NAMI remains strongly committed to research as part of our mission and will honor the work of Dr. Henderson at this special virtual event on October 22, 2020, from 2:00 – 3:00 pm ET (register here). The event is free and open to the public.

Dr. Henderson’s research interests include treatment-resistant schizophrenia and, for the past 25 years, he has worked internationally conducting research and training programs. He has led more than 30 randomized clinical trials in the U.S. Dr. Henderson’s work shows a tireless dedication and commitment to improving the lives of those affected by mental illness.

We hope you will join us to pay tribute to our honoree and recognize his outstanding contributions and achievements. This virtual event format will provide a unique opportunity for increased nationwide participation among the NAMI community.

The NAMI Scientific Research Award is supported by the Peter Corbin Kohn Endowment.
