The National Institutes of Health, otherwise referred to as NIH, is federal government agency operating within the United States Department of Health and Human Services that's primarily responsible for supporting the country's biomedical and health-related research studies.
The programs and grants of the NIH are all geared towards the realization of its overall agency mission which is to "seek fundamental knowledge about the nature and behavior of living systems and the application of that knowledge to enhance health, lengthen life, and reduce the burdens of illness and disability."
In line with this mission, the National Institutes of Health has collaborated with National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) in order to constitute the establishment of the Harnessing Advanced Health Technologies to Drive Mental Health Improvement Program.
The primary goal of the program is to test and evaluate the innovative utilization of present technologies that work towards the significant improvement of the access to and quality of mental health care, as well as the collection and use of actionable mental health information that would substantially improve outcomes of people with mental disorders.
The NIH strongly believes that the access to quality mental health services, such as face to face interventions and scheduled clinical visits, is vital to the improvement of the outcomes in people suffering from mental health disorders.
