Dr. Colleen Stiles-Shields is a licensed Clinical Psychologist and Assistant Professor at the Institute for Juvenile Research (IJR) in the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Illinois Chicago (UIC). Her research is centered around harnessing digital mental health and telehealth as delivery mechanisms to reach and improve behavioral health targets for pediatric populations. Within this work, she specifically aims to design/adapt, evaluate, and disseminate technologies to better meet the needs of pediatric populations and their families, particularly those with socially complex needs (i.e., potentially overlapping experiences of adversities and minoritized identities).

Title Description Investigator(s) Category Status
Supporting Mental Health in Underserved Youth: Engagement with Digital Mental Health Technologies in Pediatric Primary Care Mental health disorders are the most common disease of childhood. Yet, millions of teens do not receive mental health care. Most at risk are teens from underserved populations (e.g., low socioeconomic status; racial/ethnic and/or gender/sexual minority), who face a myriad of barriers to mental health screening and care. MATTERS Lab On-going
Technology Enabled Services for Depression in Family Medicine Technology-enabled services (TESs), which include mobile applications (apps) supported by low-intensity coaching or care-management, have shown great potential, with a large number of randomized controlled trials consistently demonstrating efficacy.
