Psychology and the National Institute of Mental Health provides a historical analysis of the reciprocal relationship of psychology and the NIMH. As a history, the book reveals important insights into the remarkable expansion of psychology since World War II and illuminates the role of government in shaping the lives and practices of its citizens through its funding of psychological research, training, and service. The chapters in the book show the key roles that psychologists have played at the NIMH. Authors discuss mental health policy, research supported through the extensive grant programs, training for research and practice, and the expanded support of mental health services by the federal government. Their analyses not only show how these topics shaped psychology as a discipline, but also highlight psychology's important influence on government policies.
