Translational Research & Psychiatry

Research in the Department of Psychiatry is organized into areas that link and integrate individual research endeavors across institutional boundaries within the department. These areas create a critical mass of researchers focused on a common set of problems, thereby facilitating innovative research collaboration and career development of trainees and junior faculty with shared interests. Areas of focus include mood disorders, stress, addiction and health system design.

Center for Youth Mental Health

Despite the increased risk of mental health concerns, older adolescents and young adults seek treatment at lower rates than any other age group. The Center for Youth Mental Health is a program of the Department of Psychiatry established through a grant from the Michael & Susan Dell Foundation. Its mission is to encourage and invest in ideas that can support transition-age youth with mental illness as they become healthy, productive, independent adults.

The center is working to build a multidisciplinary incubator for designing and testing new models of mental health care and close gaps in treatment for transition-age youth.
