Grant Proposal Submitted by CROPP

The Clinical Psychology Department’s Center for Research on Psychological Practice (CROPP, directed by Jim Fauth) recently submitted a grant proposal to the federal Patient Centered Outcomes Research Institute. Through our four-year Integrated Care Evaluation project, CROPP has collaborated with primary care practices in NH to develop and evaluate models for co-locating behavioral health specialists in primary care clinics. This grant would support a phase of the project in which we test whether we can help our clinic partners improve their effectiveness in addressing emotional distress and health behaviors among some of their most challenging patients. Funding would add four paid positions to our team of student collaborators.
