NAMI RESEARCH OPPORTUNITY
Posted September 12, 2018
NAMI is committed to ensuring that the most effective treatments for mental illness are available to those who need them. Determining which treatments are most effective requires research.
When NAMI learns of new studies by physicians and other scientists involving new treatment methods, such as psychotherapies, medications, methods of medication delivery, etc. we become excited. That excitement comes from knowing that scientists continue to learn more about mental illness and look for ways to improve the lives of those affected by it.
When NAMI is approached to be involved in research of any type, at any level, we take it very seriously. NAMI’s medical director, Dr. Ken Duckworth and Director of Information & Support Dr. Teri Brister thoroughly review the research protocols, methodology and the documentation that the study has been approved an Institutional Review Board (IRB) assuring the safety of those involved.
NAMI will be developing a research landing page on nami.org that will list clinical trials and other research studies that are looking for participants. For now, we are sharing any such opportunities with you, our leaders in the field. We are not requiring that you do anything with this information other than consider sharing it with your members in case any of them are interested. If you have questions about research at NAMI, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
WHAT IS THE STUDY?
This study is an anonymous online survey that looks at tobacco use by people who experience mental health conditions. The goal of this study is to give researchers more information about how many people in this population use tobacco, how many would like to quit using tobacco, and some of the important experiences and feelings involved. Collecting this information is very important to support future research in tobacco cessation.
