NAMI Virginia was selected as an Outreach Partner for the National Institute of Mental Health's (NIMH) Outreach Partnership Program. The Program enlists national and state organizations in partnerships to help bridge the gap between research and clinical practice by:
- Disseminating the latest scientific findings;
- Informing the public about mental disorders, alcoholism, and drug addiction;
- Reducing the stigma and discrimination associated with these illnesses.
The Program strives to increase public awareness about the importance of basic and clinical research in improving treatments for mental illnesses and addiction disorders through advancing knowledge about the brain and behavior.
