Center for Innovation in Mental Health Research
The mission of the Center for Innovation in Mental Health Research is to advance knowledge in the field of mental health using an evidence-based approach by conducting research in direct practice, service delivery systems, and policy. The Center's priorities include: 1) evaluating and testing intervention and practice models that serve individuals facing mental health challenges, along with co-occurring needs such as poverty, homelessness, disabilities, addictions, health challenges, and multiple service-system involvement; 2) generating and advancing culturally competent, cost effective, and evidence-based approaches to mental health service delivery; and 3) supporting ongoing workforce development in order to help meet the needs of mental health programs facing staffing challenges.
