Centennial Lecture Series | Intervention Research in Mental Health, Session 1: Intervention Innovations
for Depression and Suicide


As part of the Michigan Social Work Centennial, we are delighted to feature cutting edge, contemporary innovations in social work practice that are being created by Michigan faculty members. This series will consist of three sessions showcasing mental health intervention research happening at the University of Michigan School of Social Work.

Featuring innovative research from SSW faculty, the session provides examples of community-engaged research and multilevel interventions to address and reduce suicide and depression in diverse communities. The strategies shared range from community-level, universal prevention to indicated, individual psychotherapy. The research targets rural and urban populations, and responds to specific conditions of young Black men, Alaska Native communities, rural Michigan communities, and adults with schizophrenia spectrum disorders. The interactive panel discussion will explore the diversity and promise of current SSW research.
