Serious Mental Illness
Mental illness is a critical public health problem. The complexity of navigating the US healthcare system can make accessing appropriate care difficult. We want to improve the health and quality of life of people with mental illness. This is why we study the difficulties of affected individuals, which often includes accessing care. Our researchers examine the use, integration, and coordination of behavioral health services and other related topics to better understand what people with mental illness experience.
