The mission of the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) is to transform the understanding and treatment of mental illnesses through basic and clinical research, paving the way for prevention, recovery and cure. The Geriatrics Research Branch approaches this mission by supporting research on the etiology and pathophysiology of mental disorders of late life, the treatment of persons with these disorders, and the prevention of these disorders and their consequences. This chapter reviews new opportunities for research in geriatric mood and anxiety disorders across the translational research continuum from basic mechanisms of aging and disease to the development and implementation of community based services and interventions. New directions for the field of geriatric mental health research are also discussed.
