About Research


Research is vital to advancing our understanding of mental illness and, eventually, finding a cure. Research is the ultimate source of hope for people living with mental illness and their families. And research is imperative if we are to understand early intervention strategies as well as all we can about the mental illness continuum including medication side-effects, nutrition, recovery and more.

In addition to the information resources below, NAMI frequently features research content in the Advocate, NAMI’s membership magazine. Join today to start receiving the Advocate. If you're already a member, visit the Advocate online.
