We aspire to create an information clearinghouse with public-facing summaries of current knowledge regarding mental health prevention and treatment. We are responsive to requests for expertise, developing briefs, and being available to lobby or testify. Faculty from DU have extensive experience translating research into policy and are happy to help community partners advocate for important legislative change.
