In the United States, well-documented mental healthcare disparities disproportionately affect individuals from low-income and cultural minority backgrounds. Our lab’s mission is to help reduce these scientific and service utilization gaps through a combination of basic and applied research that focuses on urban, cultural minority children, adults, and families. The research conducted by lab members covers a range of areas relevant to mental healthcare disparities, including developmental psychopathology, treatment-seeking services research, and intervention development. In all areas, a central focus is the elucidation of the role of cultural variables and processes.
