The Children’s Mental Health Services Research Center (CMHSRC) in the College of Social Work improves the lives of at-risk youth and their families by researching the health and social service systems that care for them. The center is a national leader in research on organizations that provide mental health and child welfare services to youth and families. The center also conducts studies on evidence-based prevention and treatment practices for delinquency, substance abuse, and HIV/AIDS. Much of the center’s work has focused on developing and testing strategies for assessing and changing the cultures and climates of youth-serving organizations to improve their effectiveness.
This site is presented by CMHSRC and supported by a grant from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration to provide SBIRT Training (Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral to Treatment Health Professions Student Training).
