In a nation in which 55% of counties have no mental health provider, increasing quantity is important. However, we also need to be thinking about quality. There are effective, evidence-based treatments for nearly every mental illness. For those lucky enough to have access to care, what are the odds of receiving evidence-based treatment? NIMH Director Dr. Insel bogs about a new Institute of Medicine (IOM) report looks at a part of this question. http://1.usa.gov/1M8HDlW

With arrhythmias in the heart, we know the pacemaker and the pathways. In contrast, our understanding of rhythms in the brain and how they connect to depression remains primitive. NIMH Director Dr. Tom Insel blogs about research done by MIT that sheds new light on the brain circuits involved in depression and its treatment: http://1.usa.gov/1HwOzbJ

A NIH-funded study has found that young, single black women in South Africa adhered to a daily pill regimen to prevent HIV infection. This finding is the first strong indication that this population at substantial HIV risk could accept and reliably adhere to daily PrEP dosing. http://1.usa.gov/1Ii1deS

The first phase of the largest study of mental health risk and resilience ever conducted among military personnel ended last week. The data from the NIMH-funded study is also now available for use by the broad scientific community. NIMH Director Dr. Tom Insel blogs about how essential sharing such data is for expediting the translation of research results into knowledge, products, and procedures to improve human health. http://1.usa.gov/1HSggfh

NIH-funded study finds that boys are more likely than girls to receive a prescription for antipsychotic medication regardless of age. Among antipsychotic users with mental disorder diagnoses, ADHD was the most common among youth ages 1-18. "Antipsychotics should be prescribed with care. They can adversely affect both physical and neurological function and some of their adverse effects can persist even after the medication is stopped,” said co-author Michael Schoenbaum, Ph.D., NIMH expert. http://1.usa.gov/1LVnFYH
