Clinical Research Trials & You

NIMH supports a large number of research studies, including both laboratory and clinical research. Clinical research trials enroll people with disorders being studied to participate in tests of new ways to prevent, detect, or treat disease. Some studies enroll healthy participants to provide baseline information on health. Clinical research trials are at the heart of all medical advances. 

You can learn more about how to participate, refer a patient, or learn about results of studies at clinicaltrials.gov, the National Institutes of Health (NIH)/National Library of Medicine's registry of federally and privately funded clinical trials conditions at NIH and across the country for a variety of diseases and conditions. You can search by disorder name or view current studies on mental health at clinicaltrials.gov. You can also learn about studies conducted at the NIH Clinical Center in Bethesda, MD. 

By participating in our Thunderclap, you are helping to spread awareness about the importance of clinical research for understanding and treating mental illnesses. After you sign up for our Thunderclap, you will automatically send a message at 7:00 PM ET on February 21, 2016, which will show your friends and followers your support for clinical research. The result will be a “thunderclap” of simultaneous Twitter and Facebook posts from everyone who signed up.
