MHRN was established with support by the National Institute of Mental Health with the aim of becoming a national resource for mental health care research.  Our mission includes sharing resources developed in our Network.  Similarly, our parent organization, the Health Care Systems Research Network (HCSRN) “strives to share lessons learned, streamline and standardize administrative processes and facilitate research…”.  Below you will find links to some of the resources we have developed in MHRN to date.
