Developing the Capacity for a New Generation of Implementation Studies in Mental Health

Research Paper Title

Capacity-building and training opportunities for implementation science in mental health.

Background

This article traces efforts over the past decade by the National Institute of Mental Health, of the US National Institutes of Health, and other US organisations to build capacity for mental health researchers to advance activities in implementation science.

The authors briefly chronicle the antecedents to the field’s growth, and describe funding opportunities, workshop and conferences, training programmes, and other initiatives that have collectively engaged hundreds of mental health researchers in the development and execution of implementation studies across the breadth of contexts where mental health care and prevention programs are delivered to those in need.

The authors summarise a number of key initiatives and present potential next steps to further build the capacity for a new generation of implementation studies in mental health.
