We are grateful for funding and ongoing support from the NIMH (R25MH101076-02S1 and R25MH086466-07S1), AADPRT, the Society of Biological Psychiatry, and the American College of Neuropsychopharmacology.
We are a team of psychiatry educators committed to making core concepts in neuroscience accessible and clinically relevant for a broad audience. We rely on a collaborative approach with a peer-review process for generating and reviewing content. Resources include interactive classroom sessions, brief accessible reviews, and short videos for self-study and teaching in clinical settings. Teaching resources are: rooted in principles of adult learning; organized in an integrated, patient centered manner; and designed so that anyone, anywhere can implement them regardless of their own content expertise. To aid in implementation, each teaching resource is paired with a facilitator’s guide with step-by-step instructions; answer keys for in-class exercises; additional background readings; and, in many cases, video samples of a skilled instructor delivering that exact session—all freely available. Our work is funded by grants from the National Institute of Mental Health, the Society of Biological Psychiatry, and the American College of Neuropsychopharmacology. We do not receive any funding from industry.
The overarching aim of the NNCI is to create, pilot, and disseminate a comprehensive set of shared resources that will help train psychiatrists and other mental health professionals to integrate a modern neuroscience perspective into every facet of their clinical work.
Additional learning objectives—reflecting relevant knowledge, skills, and attitudes—include:
