    Research Interests

    Brady Case, MD, director of health services research, talks about how mental health care is provided in the community and how to improve it.

    Case recently became one of five child psychiatrists across the U.S. awarded a four-year grant by the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry to study adolescent substance use disorders. He is currently collaborating with investigators at Brown University, the National Institutes of Health, Columbia University, New York University and the University of Pennsylvania to advance the care of young people in several core areas:

    • More accurately and rapidly identify youth most likely to never receive needed care.
    • More effectively extend treatment through new clinical programs and novel policies.
    • More rigorously evaluate the effectiveness of treatments currently provided in the community and uncover opportunities for improvement.
