Initiative seeks to bridge research and care related to mental illness

A new initiative seeks to bring findings from mental health research into the clinic, with the goal of developing better treatments for psychological disorders.

The National Institute of Mental Health’s Research Domain Criteria (RDoC) provides a detailed framework to accomplish this, and an article in Psychophysiology spotlights RDoC-oriented research related to a range of conditions.
