90% of proven behavioral and mental health interventions have yet to be used by practitioners in public and private health sectors. The ASU REACH Institute is changing that!
The mission of the ASU REACH Institute, which is within the Department of Psychology, is to bridge the gap between university-based research and practice to promote children’s mental and physical health and academic achievement. Scientists at the institute are leaders in developing and evaluating child and family interventions for culturally diverse and international communities. They use their expertise in translating evidence-based interventions into community practice in their work with policy makers and community stakeholders locally and globally and across diverse service sectors, including schools, community mental health agencies, hospitals and courts.
