My research focuses on understanding how health and social policies affect individuals with mental health conditions and substance use disorders. I am currently conducting research in four main areas: (1) examining the impact of insurance and financing reforms on health service use and spending among persons with mental health conditions and substance use disorders; (2) assessing the implementation of models that integrate mental health care, addiction treatment, other medical care, and social services; (3) evaluating policy responses to the opioid epidemic; and (4) policy communication research involving measurement of public attitudes, tracking of news media coverage, and evaluating the persuasive effects of messages framing behavioral health policy issues.
