In 1996, the Library of Congress and the National Institute of Mental Health of the National Institutes of Health marked the 50th anniversary of the signing of the National Mental Health Act, which enabled the establishment of NIMH, with a series of special programs focusing on "Fifty Years of Progress in Understanding and Treating Mental Illness." The programs drew on the expertise of specialists and reported on progress in treating some of the most common brain disorders: "Overcoming Obstacles to Treatment"; "Depressive Illnesses"; "Schizophrenia"; "Developmental/Learning Disorders"; "Alzheimer's Disease"; "Anxiety Disorders."
