Figuring out how best to deliver effective therapies is the domain of services research. Dr. Gordon offers examples of the spectrum of services research supported by NIMH.
Researchers funded by the National Institutes of Health have shown that a therapy-based treatment for disruptive behavioral disorders can be adapted and used as an effective treatment option for early childhood depression.
