Our communities are suffering from poor behavioral health research to practice translation. The most common methods of knowledge exchange rely on the motivation of clinician scientists to license or market behavioral health innovations and for policymakers to listen to consumers. This relies on the unpredictable motivations, capacities and values of behavioral health system actors.
We conduct research on evidence translation, providing development and implementation support for behavioral health programs and systems, through evidence synthesis, knowledge integration, and design. We work with community organizations, government agencies, policymakers, service providers, and healthcare payers.
