Need and Use of Information Collection: This request serves as notice that the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) is seeking OMB approval of a generic plan to conduct information collections to interface with the scientific community and promote the RDoC Initiative. As the lead Federal agency for research on mental illnesses, NIMH's mission is to transform the understanding and treatment of mental illnesses through basic and clinical research, paving the way for prevention, recovery, and cure. To this end, NIMH launched the RDoC Initiative in 2009 to implement Strategy 1.4 of the 2008 NIMH Strategic Plan: “Develop new ways of classifying disorders based on dimensions of observable behaviors and brain functions.” The aim of RDoC is to Start Printed Page 16379guide research that begins with disruptions in neurobiological and behavioral mechanisms, and then works across systems to clarify connections among such disruptions and clinical symptoms. The information collected as part of this generic clearance will allow NIMH to determine success of the RDoC Initiative, develop future directions and endeavors, and to help guide programmatic priorities for RDoC and the agency.

OMB approval is requested for 3 years. There are no costs to respondents' other than their time. The total estimated annualized burden hours are 490.
