Public & Media Resources

The ACNP is committed to providing informational resources to its members, the public and the media.  In this section of the website, you will find our media policy, specifically how it relates to the annual meeting and press releases. Members of the College as well as the media should become familiar with it. Official news releases from the College can be found on these pages as well. We also have posted neuroscience resources for the classroom, policies on the use of animals and humans in research, and guidelines for crisis management should your lab come under attack.  News articles that feature our members can also be found within.  Finally, we have posted helpful links to advocacy and governmental organizations that will be of interest to our members or anyone interested in neuropsychopharmacology.

Why is Neuroscience and Mental Health Research Important? (PDF 27Kb)

Katharine Phillips, M.D.

Neuroscience and mental health research seeks answers to complex, critically important questions. What causes mental illness? How can we better treat these common burdensome disorders? How can we prevent them? Scientific research is the best way to answer such questions, and hasten the development of new treatments.
