Our Mission and Vision
Recovery from mental illness is now a real possibility, yet too many Americans suffer the disabilities associated with mental disorder due to a fragmented, disconnected, and often-inadequate system of mental health care. 
Our research agenda offers unique opportunity to meet the challenge of extending evidence-based care to the most vulnerable of our society’s members. Improving the quality of mental health care to social service clients has enormous potential to ensure treatment to persons whose disorder currently goes undetected, to extend evidence-based care to those who are now served poorly, and to reduce racial disparities in care.
