The NIMH blueprint for change report: research priorities in child and adolescent mental health.

Author information

  • 1The National Institute of Mental Health, Bethesda, MD 20892-9630, USA.


The National Institute of Mental Health established a special subgroup of its National Advisory Mental Health Council to review major research findings on child and adolescent psychiatric disorders over the past decade and to recommend research priorities for the next decade. This Workgroup on Child and Adolescent Mental Health Intervention Development and Deployment published its report, titled Blueprint for Change: Research on Child and Adolescent Mental Health, in August 2001, and several new research announcements reflecting these new directions have been issued since that time. This article summarizes the rationale for and background to the report, its major conclusions, and the reasons why interdisciplinary and translational approaches to research questions in child and adolescent mental health will help to maximize scientific advances.
