Our group is engaged in research projects designed to promote an understanding of how we can implement effective evidence-informed innovations in community-based service settings. Currently, the lab's main research efforts are focused on better understanding how we can implement and sustain evidence-informed programs and practices designed to support the mental health needs of youth in community settings. The research projects provide opportunities for graduate and undergraduate students to learn about and participate in research focused on improving mental health care for children and their families in community settings.  Collaborators on our ongoing projects include Kevin Sutherland (VCU School of Education), Maureen Conroy (University of Florida),  Jeffrey Wood (UCLA), Kristen Granger (Vanderbilt University), Jason E. Chapman (Chesnut Health Systems), Michael Southam-Gerow (VCU Psychology Department), John R. Weisz (Harvard University), Aaron Lyon (University of Washington), Amanda Jensen-Doss (University of Miami), and  Aaron Hogue (Partnership to End Addiction).
