Business Team Concept: FUNDING

Evidence-based mental health services are often not used, or not used effectively, in low-resource settings and in settings with clients from traditionally underserved populations. The National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) supports a research agenda aimed at understanding and reducing these mental health disparities to achieve greater equity in mental health care. NIMH has released two funding opportunity announcements (FOAs) to support research to evaluate evidence-based mental health practices in these disadvantaged populations, including:
