About Us

The Missouri Institute of Mental Health’s (MIMH) mission is to improve and transform mental health outcomes through innovative research and program development, program evaluation, community outreach, and professional training. Our target population is incredibly varied based on the wide scope of work performed. A broad definition would be any individual impacted by, at risk for, or living with a mental illness, behavioral health condition, traumatic brain injury, or HIV/AIDS, as well as all sectors who work with these individuals from policy-makers to funders to direct-service workers.

The Missouri Institute of Mental Health is committed to promoting a diverse culture of respect, equality and inclusion for all. We celebrate and advance diversity by creating a safe community in which all people can share their unique talents, ideas and perspectives.
