Mental disorders were one of the five most costly conditions in the United States in 2006, affecting numerous adults and children. Family abuse and substance abuse also remain serious problems. The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) supports a diverse array of mental health research projects that examine these and other issues. This Program Brief presents findings from AHRQ intramural and extramural research projects on mental health, which were published between 2007 and 2009.
