In recent decades, we’ve seen exciting breakthroughs in the fields of mental health and addiction treatment, each resulting in relief for more and more people. But many continue to suffer because they have not yet found a treatment that works for them. Researchers study new approaches for treating mental health disorders so more people can get the help they need.
Research is the foundation of advancements in mental health treatment. It deepens our understanding of mental illness and addiction, and allows us to improve current treatments and develop new ones. Research also helps raise public awareness and inform public policies that affect people with mental illness. Research makes a difference, and it’s more important now than ever before.
