National Institute of Mental Health originated from Prague Psychiatric Centre on 1st January 2015 and is located at Topolová 748, 250 67 Klecany. The establishment of a new modern center oriented on research and clinical care was made possible by a project financed by Operational Programme Research and Development for Innovation. NIMH is meant to become a national reference institution for the field of mental health.
NIMH programme is focused on researching neurobiological mechanisms that lead to the development of severe mental disorders (schizophrenia, depression, anxiety and stress reactions). Research also includes the development and testing of new diagnostic and therapeutic methods. Our approach is based upon interconnection of methods of molecular biology, animal modeling and clinical research and testing.
