The NIMH encourages studies on the co-occurrence and co-morbidity of mental disorders with other physical disorders. An important goal of this program announcement is to identify potent, modifiable risk and protective factors amenable to intervention, and to translate the results of such studies into initial tests of theory-driven prevention and early intervention strategies. Risk and protective factors include biological, psychosocial, behavioral, and environmental contributors to co-morbid disorders. The program announcement encourages research on the efficacy, effectiveness, long-term outcome and safety of preventive, treatment, and rehabilitative interventions across the lifespan; clinical trials and intervention studies targeting functional and symptomatic outcomes adapting pharmacological, psychosocial, behavioral, or environmental approaches individually or in combination; studies to improve the recruitment and retention of individuals with co-m!
orbid disorders in real-world practice settings; and research on the impact of separate organizational systems and different financing mechanism for mental and other physical disorders. Major emphasis is placed on the identification of principles motivating and sustaining behavior changes critical to reducing the risk for co-occurring disorders. Studies are particularly encouraged of mental disorders that are co-morbid with other physical disorders that are among the leading causes of morbidity and mortality in the United States, including heart disease, cancer, strokes, chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases, and diabetes, for example. The Institute will, however, consider applications that focus on any combination of co-morbid mental and other physical disorder across the lifespan; it is incumbent upon the applicant to demonstrate the public health significance of the study by describing the severity and/or prevalence of the disorders studied.
