The Criminal Justice & Mental Health Research Center (the Center) staff and consultants are comprised of an interdisciplinary group of subject matter experts in criminal legal and behavioral health research, from study development to dissemination of findings. The Center excels at conducting mixed methods research that combine quantitative (i.e., survey data) and qualitative data (i.e., interviews) to provide a more comprehensive picture of the issue at hand. Our research includes more traditional, “academic-type” studies as well as tailored research to meet a client’s specific needs, such as collecting stakeholder feedback about a state’s community mental health strategic plan.
