NAMI 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 Chief Medical Officer Dr. Ken Duckworth and National Director of Research and Quality Assurance 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 about your experiences during the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic. The researchers are especially interested in hearing from individuals who provide unpaid care to a family member or loved one with a mental illness or disability. The goal of the study is to understand how the current COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic has affected your life and your experiences as a caregiver. This research will help inform the development of programs to assist caregivers during this difficult time.
WHO CAN PARTICIPATE?
This study is open to all participants. You are not required to be a caregiver of a person with a mental illness in order to participate.
The study is seeking 200 individuals who are caregivers of a person with mental illness to participate.
