Dear Ms. Navas,
Thank you for posting your request to History Hub!
The National Archives has custody of the Records of the National Institutes of Health (Record Group 443), the Records of the Alcohol, Drug Abuse, and Mental Health Administration (Record Group 511), the Records of the Public Health Services (Record Group 90), the Records of the US Navy’s Bureau of Medicine and Surgery (Record Group 52), the Records of the Army’s Office of the Surgeon General (Record Group 112), and other records relating to federal involvement with health and medical issues that might have some information about mental health related programs. Please use the National Archives Catalog to search for descriptions of these records. If you find records that may be relevant to your research interests, please contact the reference unit listed in the Catalog description or ask about them here on History Hub.
You can also contact organizations with a specialized focus on medicine and psychology, such as the The University of Akron Cummings Center for the History of Psychology, the American Psychological Association's History of Psychology, the U.S. National Library of Medicine (NLM), and the psychology departments of universities.
We hope this information is helpful. Best of luck with your research!
