Central State Hospital

Central State Hospital (CSH) was ordered closed by Governor Evan Bayh in 1992, with a target closure date of June 30, 1994. CSH was the oldest psychiatric hospital in Indiana, with its campus located wholly within Indianapolis. ICMHSR researchers studied the closure process and followed the progress of discharged patients. The research study spanned more than a decade, with the final materials collected in 2004.

Indianapolis Network Mental Health Study (INMHS)

The Indianapolis Network Mental Health Study (INMHS) was a long-term study of individuals making their first significant contact with the mental health system. Study participants had a diagnosis of a serious mental illness (schizophrenia, major depression or bipolar disorder) and were recruited when admitted to the hospital. The focus of the study was the change over time in respondents' social networks. Most respondents were interviewed four times in face-to-face, in-depth interviews. In addition, one to three "network contacts" were interviewed about the focal respondents at each wave of interviews.

Two Indianapolis hospitals, one the largest public hospital, and the other a private hospital, participated in the study. The study staff interviewed respondents, conducted SCID evaluation to verify diagnosis, and followed up with the respondents through four waves of interviews. Data collection was conducted over a 10-year period.
