Mental Health and Well-Being
Helping organizations build effective and equitable mental health services and systems
Wilder Research studies the quality, effectiveness and accessibility of mental health services and policy.
From comprehensive analyses of statewide behavioral health systems to individual program evaluations, we bring a collaborative, responsive and trauma-informed approach to our work. We also study and evaluate holistic and preventative mental health and well-being efforts.
Much of our research and evaluation focuses on the intersection between mental health and substance use, and their associated social determinants and risk and resilience factors. Our research helps make sense of complex systems and inform program improvements while focusing on equitable access to high-quality, culturally relevant care for children, adults and families.
As part of an operating foundation, we are also in the unique position to partner with direct service providers to develop and measure the effectiveness of research-supported services.
