The National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) invites applications for research to
reduce mental illness stigma and discrimination. This initiative was conceived in
collaboration with the Center for Mental Health Services (CMHS), within the
Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), and is in
response to The Presidents New Freedom Commission on Mental Healths call for a
national campaign to reduce mental illness stigma. The CMHS, which has a long
history of providing support for innovative anti-stigma programs and strategies,
recently launched the Elimination of Barriers Initiative (EBI). The EBI is a major
undertaking to identify effective approaches in addressing mental illness stigma
and discrimination. In a parallel effort, the NIMH is taking several new steps to
encourage research applications to substantially increase our knowledge about how
to effectively reduce stigma and discrimination and their consequences. This
program announcement represents one of these steps and its purpose is to provide
funding for partnerships between (1) consumer and/or advocate organizations,
communities, or state and local agencies with hands-on expertise in developing and
implementing stigma reduction programs and strategies, and (2) social, behavioral,
and/or communication scientists with expertise in stigma research design and
methodology. These scientists would undertake studies that will: assess the
effectiveness of existing stigma and discrimination reduction programs and
approaches, including media-oriented approaches such as public service
announcements; examine how, why, and for whom existing programs or approaches work;
develop innovative new programs and approaches; and provide a better understanding
of the impact of varied media (e.g., television, newspapers, magazines, cinema,
direct-to-consumer advertising, internet), both positive and negative, on attitudes
and beliefs about mental illness, and in perpetuating and changing mental illness
stigma and discrimination.
