Research Interests and Publications

Dr. Park studies how to improve the accessibility, quality, and effectiveness of mental health services using dissemination and implementation science. She is particularly interested in re-designing mental health programs and developing decision-support tools for mitigating racial and ethnic mental health disparities. Her research is largely conducted in partnership with stakeholders in the community mental health agencies and schools.

Dr. Park will be seeking a new doctoral or master's student for Fall 2023.
