What we do

Break the mold of traditional research laboratories that are limited by geographic boundaries. The ultimate goal of this new model of virtual collaboration is to accelerate the production and dissemination of rigorous research that seeks to improve public mental health. 

Measurement

Building and testing psychometric instruments. Conducting latent variable analyses.

Treatments

Understanding the effects of and building evidence for mental health treatments such as psychotherapy, psychotropic medications, and community-based interventions. 

Services

Examining the use of outpatient and inpatient mental health care as well as the interplay between the two.  

Populations

Focus on children, adolescents, and transition-aged youth and their family members, as well as individuals with a Developmental Disorder, such as those with Autism Spectrum Disorder and/or Intellectual Disability. 

Crisis

Specialize in research surrounding the measurement, treatment, and services related to mental health crises. By crisis, we mean an acute disturbance of thought, mood, or behavior that requires immediate intervention and the resources available to safely manage the situation are not available at the time and place of the occurrence.

Generalizability

Investigating how study results extend from the study to target population. 

Online Research

Employ internet-mediated techniques across both observational and experimental designs.
