The National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) is pleased to announce the launch of its new statistics section on the web <http://www.nimh.nih.gov/statistics/index.shtml> . This resource represents the best mental health research information from across the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and other federal departments, and places it all within an easy-to-navigate format. It is a vast expansion from NIMH’s previous statistics pages and includes information on the prevalence of mental disorders and treatment, mental health-related disability, suicide, and the economic costs associated with mental illness.

This new section is very much a living resource. It will continue to be updated regularly as new mental health data from across the federal government are reported and its format will continue to evolve in order to ensure the most straightforward usability and clearest presentation of information. We encourage you to explore this resource, to share it with family and friends, and to provide us with feedback about what works and what else might be included or changed. Your thoughts and feedback may be sent to NIMHstatistics@nih.gov.
