Leveraging Existing Natural Experiments to Advance the Health of People with Severe Mental Illness
Effective interventions to reduce common modifiable health risk factors exist for the general population. However, these interventions are generally unavailable to people with severe mental illness and evidence is sparse on how to bring them to this population. Many state and local health authorities have implemented innovative services interventions to reduce the identified health risk factors and premature mortality in people with serious mental illness, though their effectiveness for this population and the degree of adaptation needed for effectiveness remain unknown. The National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) seeks to leverage these existing natural experiments by building research capacity for subsequent rigorous testing of services interventions already implemented at state and local levels for adults, youth or children. Learn more about this NIMA funding opportunity.
Notice of Intent to Publish a Funding Opportunity Announcement for Improving Health and Reducing Premature Mortality in People with Severe Mental Illness (R01)
The NIMH intends to promote a new initiative by publishing a Funding Opportunity Announcement to request applications for rigorous effectiveness testing of innovative services interventions designed to reduce the prevalence and magnitude of common modifiable health risk factors related to shortened lifespan in adults with severe mental illness, as well as in children and youth with serious emotional disturbances.
