Pamela Collins, MD, MPH

Personal Statement

I come to UW after nearly eight years of leadership at the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) where I led the development of new funding initiatives for research or research training opportunities in mental health services research in low- and middle-income countries and mental health disparities research in the US, building a robust and growing portfolio in global mental health and creating a pathway to independence for young investigators while also stimulating research in US underserved populations. My current global mental health projects include work in sub-Saharan Africa.
