RESEARCH OPPORTUNITY

NAMI is committed to improving the lives of people impacted by mental health conditions through effective treatments, equitable public policies, and greater knowledge and understanding in society. Research is essential to advance each of these goals.

When NAMI is approached to be involved in research of any type, at any level, we take it very seriously. NAMI’s medical director, Dr. Ken Duckworth and Director of Information & Support Dr. Teri Brister thoroughly review the research protocols and methodology and the documentation that the study has been approved an Institutional Review Board (IRB) to assure the safety of those involved.

NAMI does not accept financial compensation for recruiting research participants. NAMI also does not endorse any products or treatments. We share these research opportunity notices with you, our field leaders, to distribute at your discretion if you believe that members of your community may be interested in participating in these studies.

WHAT IS THE STUDY?

This study is an anonymous online survey being conducted by Dr. Eric Storch, PhD, at the Baylor College of Medicine. The goal of the study is to better understand participants’ thoughts and feelings about Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) as a treatment option for severe Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) in adolescents. Understanding the thoughts and feelings of adults with OCD, and of parents who have children with OCD, will support researchers working to improve treatment options in the future.

WHO CAN PARTICIPATE?

Individuals may be eligible for this study if they are:

  • Adults (aged 18+) with OCD
  • Parents (aged 18+) of children with OCD
