About the Center on Mental Health Services Research and Policy.
The Center engages in research, training, and technical assistance to enhance service delivery and increase knowledge about behavioral health disorders. We fully involve people with psychiatric and substance use disorders, their friends and families, service providers, policy makers, advocates, and other stakeholders in our research and education efforts. Our work promotes concepts of recovery, self-determination, and full community participation for individuals with behavioral health disabilities.
The Center conducts projects in the areas of vocational, residential, and educational rehabilitation services; crisis management and prevention of hospitalization; the needs of women and people from diverse cultural backgrounds; and systems integration. The Center also emphasizes the needs and experiences of individuals living with HIV/AIDS and other co-occurring medical conditions. Additional work addresses treatment for homeless individuals with behavioral health disorders, as well as the experiences of family members and friends of people in recovery.
There are nine major areas in the Center’s Web site. Eight of these are topical areas under which our research and training projects can be found.
The UIC MHSRP has an extensive list of publications, outlined in the eighth area of our Web site. You will find a printable order form here, which can be faxed or mailed directly to the Dissemination Coordinator at our Center.
And finally, the ninth area of this site provides contact information for each of the staff employed here at Center.
We make presentations at various international, national, and local conferences on behavioral health treatment models and services. Many of these presentations have handouts available by request. Relevant presentations can also be found in the Products sections of many of our individual project pages. You can also visit our Presentations page to which we add new presentations as they become available.
