Failure to treat mental health issues in children has enormous costs for individuals and society. Though there have been major research breakthroughs in effective ways to serve our children, it can take decades for these techniques to make it into practice. ITR brings together researchers and professionals from many disciplines to bridge this gap between research and practice in order to better serve our children and communities.

WHAT WE DO

  • Conduct basic and translational research on effective mental health treatments.  ITR faculty have served over 1000 children and families in research studies.

  • Train those who work with children on the most effective mental health treatments. Each year, ITR serves over 8,700 children and families through Ambit Network, a National Child Traumatic Stress Network Community and Treatment Services Center.

  • Provide direct mental health services. The Family Innovations Counseling and Training Center at ITR provides evidence-based treatment interventions to low income, high-risk children and families.

  • Bring together leading interdisciplinary researchers in children’s mental health.  ITR has 14 faculty from 8 different departments across 5 colleges and fosters collaboration through regular faculty meetings, symposia, colloquia, networking events, and professional development
