2009 NATIONAL MENTAL HEALTH RESEARCH-TO-POLICY FORUM:
Interface of Mental Health Research and Policy in the Era of National Health Reform
Both mental health researchers and mental health policy makers are being challenged by the lack of an effective interface between these fields. Mental health researchers produce analyses that policy makers can’t use effectively. Policy makers ask questions that have not been fully researched. The ability of mental health research to provide policy makers with data they can use is further challenged by compartmentalization between clinical interventions research and health care services research. The upcoming national health reform debate will accelerate demands for answers to important mental health policy questions.
The National Mental Health Research-to-Policy Forum will attempt to provide a compass for researchers and policy experts interested in the changing mental health science-policy-services landscape. The program will feature leading researchers, policy experts and decision makers who are engaged in advancing the capabilities of research for improving mental health.
