Welcome to the Lab for Youth Mental Health, led by Professor John Weisz.
Our research bridges the gap between clinical science and practice to improve youth mental health care.
We have implemented and tested a modular approach to youth psychotherapy in communities and schools across the globe.
We conduct meta-analyses of psychotherapy research to characterize the state of our field and improve research and practice.
We have developed an efficient, principle-guided treatment targeting an array of youth mental health problems.
We are now using FIRST in an NIMH-funded multisite clinical trial in Massachusetts and Texas.
We design brief digital interventions focused on key principles of therapeutic change.
We partner with the Shamiri Institute to develop accessible and evidence-based interventions for youth in Sub-Saharan Africa.
