Mental Health Research Network II


Funded by the National Institute of Mental Health, the MHRN was established in 2010 to provide infrastructure support for population-based research to improve the speed, efficiency, generalizability, and relevance of mental health clinical and services research.  The MHRN is led by Dr. Greg Simon at Group Health (Seattle).  Essentia is a new member of this network that now includes 15 integrated health care systems across the US.  Steve Waring is the Site Principal Investigator.  The research team includes Allise Taran and Paul Hitz.  Contact Steve Waring at 218-786-1280 for further information.
