Dr. Alisa K. Lincoln joined the IUHRP as an Associate Director, where she oversees the development of a Mental Health Research Program. She has been actively involved in conducting public mental health research for more than a decade and has received more than four million dollars in federal research funds.
Dr. Lincoln completed an NIMH pre-doctoral Fellowship in Psychiatric Epidemiology, and was an NIMH-funded Public Academic Liaison (PAL) Fellow through the National Association of State Mental Health Program Directors (NASMHPD) training grant. Her training in Mental Health Services Research continued with the “Mentoring for Mental Health Services Research” NIMH R25. Dr. Lincoln’s research contributes to our knowledge about disparities in mental health and mental health care and focuses on the ways in which social factors and system level factors inter-relate to perpetuate these disparities.
