Research Studies and Projects

Our portfolio of research is designed to meet state challenges to implementation of evidence-based practices, which include (but are not limited to):

  • the lack of engagement in EBP initiatives by providers and consumers
  • poor integration of data/decision support systems for timely monitoring of EBP services and outcomes. 
  • the lack of pragmatic mixed methods and measures for assessing the value of different implementation approaches

Within the IDEAS Center, current grants and funded research include:

  • NIMH P30 –  Advanced Center for State Research to Scale up EBPs for Children
  • NIMH R01 - Improving Family-to-Family Services
