Leveraging Existing Natural Experiments to Advance the Health of People with Severe Mental Illness (R24)

The National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) seeks to leverage existing natural experiments by building research capacity for subsequent rigorous testing of services interventions already implemented at state and local levels for adults, youth, or children. This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA)(RFA-MH-13-140) will support 1-year R24 grants for research planning activities to develop the infrastructure needed to enable subsequent testing of existing innovative services interventions that aim to reduce the prevalence and magnitude of common modifiable health risk factors related to shortened lifespan in people with severe mental illness (SMI).

Improving Health and Reducing Premature Mortality in People with Severe Mental Illness (R01)

The NIMH intends to promote a new initiative by publishing an FOA (NOT-MH-13-010) to request applications for rigorous effectiveness testing of innovative services interventions designed to reduce the prevalence and magnitude of common modifiable health risk factors related to shortened lifespan in adults with sSMI, as well as in children and youth with serious emotional disturbances (SED).
