The Child Development and Behavior (CDB) Branch develops scientific initiatives and supports research and research training relevant to the psychological, psychobiological, language, behavioral, and educational development of children. The following theme characterizes all Branch programs: Development is best described and studied as a variable process in which individual differences in cognitive, social, affective, language, neurobiological maturation, environment and life experiences, and genetics interact in complex ways.

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 Division of Developmental Translational Research (DDTR) supports programs of research and research training with the ultimate goal of preventing and curing childhood psychopathology. DDTR supports research that employs a developmental perspective on a variety of related basic behavioral processes and the psychopathology that arises from their dysfunction. These efforts to translate knowledge from basic research to a new understanding of clinical disorders share the goal of developing novel treatment and prevention strategies. The Child Abuse and Neglect Program within DDTR supports research that addresses child abuse and neglect, and familial aspects of traumatic stress as risk factors for psychopathology in children and adolescents.

The mission of the Division is to prevent violence-related injuries and deaths through surveillance, research and development, capacity building, communication and leadership. In pursuit of that mission, CDC's efforts to prevent child maltreatment focus on developing, evaluating, and disseminating evidence-based interventions that support safe, stable and nurturing relationships (SSNRs) for children.
