The National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH)—part of the National Institutes of Health, an agency of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services—has awarded IQ Solutions a 3-year contract to provide professional services in multiple areas, including public inquiry response, content and publications development, exhibiting and outreach, materials distribution, database development, and information management.
NIMH serves as the lead federal agency for research on mental disorders. The Institute provides resources on a broad range of health topics, from suicide prevention to attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, autism spectrum disorders, and post-traumatic stress disorder. NIMH engages a range of stakeholder representatives as part of its efforts to ensure the greatest public health impact of the research it supports. NIMH also is involved in clinical research, training, and legislative impact for improved mental health.
“IQ Solutions welcomes the opportunity to become part of the national effort to improve the lives of individuals living with a spectrum of mental health concerns,” said Ileana Quintas, CEO and founder of IQ Solutions. “Given the ever-changing state of the science, evolution of new technologies, and increased collaboration among existing and new partners, NIMH plays an increasingly vital role in connecting and engaging stakeholders, anticipating the information needs of users, promoting increased awareness, and using the tools and materials necessary to provide evidence-based resources and guidance.”
