The MHCGM Research Department is a full-time, professionally staffed research department that seeks to build successful collaborations with other research communities. We have performed leading edge mental health research and program evaluation on Evidence-Based Practices for people with Serious Mental Illness for over 15 years. We were the primary site for the early ground breaking research with Dartmouth Medical School on the Supported Employment (SE) practice, Co-Occurring Disorders (IDDT) and Intensive Case Management. We maintain a close relationship with Dartmouth Medical School.
We have participated in numerous national-wide studies including the Mental Health Treatment Study through the US Social Security Administration, and many medication trials including Massachusetts General Hospital's study of the use of smoking cessation medication for people diagnosed with Schizophrenia.
The MHCGM Research Department has been engaged in all stages of research design, recruitment, implementation, interpretation, and dissemination. Protocols range from clinical medication trials to psychosocial interventions, and from neuropsychological testing to substance use screening. We are proud of our record of reliably recruiting large numbers of subjects for the many different studies in which we have been a partner. Please click here for testimonials.
