Division of Mental Health and Substance Use
Under the direction of Dr. Deric Kenne, the Center for Public Policy and Health’s Division of Mental Health and Substance Use conducts timely and relevant research in the fields of mental health and substance abuse and communicates to stakeholders, policymakers and professionals who can utilize the findings to improve the health of the public. This work includes programs and research to increase awareness about mental health and substance use, reduce stigma, increase service utilization, and track substance use trends. The Division of Mental Health and Substance Use also works to inform federal, state, and local policies. The Center and Division are both housed in the College of Public Health.
