The National Institute of Mental Health Division Intramural Research Program (NIMH DIRP) plans and conducts basic, clinical, and translational research to advance understanding of the diagnosis, causes, treatment, and prevention of mental disorders through the study of brain function and behavior. The NIMH DIRP conducts state of the art research that, in part, complements extramural research activities and exploits the special resources of the National Institutes of Health; provides an environment conducive to the training and development of clinical and basic scientists; fosters standards of excellence in the ethical treatment and the provision of clinical care to research subjects; serves as a resource to the NIMH in responding to requests made by the Administration, members of Congress, and citizens' groups for information regarding mental disorders; and analyzes and evaluates national needs and research opportunities and provides advice to the Institute Director on matters of scientific interest.
