Summer Institute in Mental Health Research

The Summer Institute in Mental Health Research will be offered over the course of a three-week period, June 8 – June 26, 2015, by the Department of Mental Health, Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.

The Institute focuses on methodological and substantive topics in mental health and substance-use research. It is intended for working professionals or students who are interested in developing research expertise in the epidemiology of mental health and substance use disorders, the implementation and evaluation of mental health services and interventions, and/or the methodological issues encountered in mental health research in the population.

After completing the program, participants will understand the latest findings on the occurrences of mental health and substance use disorders in the population and their implications for public mental health; know the steps involved in the scientific, empirical evaluation of services and interventions targeted for mental health outcomes; and acquire the skills and knowledge needed in using the state of the art methodological tools for collecting and analyzing mental health data.Where academic credit leading to a degree is desired, students are required to pay the standard school tuition ($1020 per credit) for Bloomberg School of Public Health degree students. This rate does not apply to students taking courses for non-credit. The non-credit tuition rate for 2015 is $510 per credit.  No scholarship and/or grant support is available.
