Enhancing mental health research capacity: emerging voices from the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) global hubs

"Emerging researchers in low- and middle-income countries (LMIC) face many barriers, including inadequacies in funding, international exposure and mentorship. In 2012, the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) funded five research hubs aimed at improving the research core for evidence-based mental health interventions, enhancing research skills in global mental health, and providing capacity building (CB) opportunities for early career investigators in LMIC. In this paper emerging researchers contextualize their experiences."

Aims and scope

International Journal of Mental Health Systems (IJMHS) publishes the latest mental health research and health systems research, reviews, case studies and guidelines, policy, debates, technical and methodological advances, and lessons from the field that will advance and shape the emerging discipline of global mental health.
