Research on Wellness focuses on approaches to promoting health and wellness in people affected by behavioral health disorders. We are conducting research on smoking cessation, health promotion and healthy living, and stress management. We are closely aligned with the Department of Psychiatry’s Wellness Initiative which includes research, teaching, and clinical intervention initiatives that integrate wellness and preventive care activities across the Department and all related clinical sites.
We are interested in:
Mindfulness-based interventions adapted to specific populations including people with serious mental health conditions, PTSD and substance abuse, and for staff who care for people with these conditions
Organizational change studies for tobacco cessation
Wellness initiatives in Psychosocial Rehabilitation programs
The integration of primary care and behavioral health services
