In collaboration with the Policy Research Group, University of Cambridge, UK, the Global Mental Health Lab at TC, is organizing a five-day certificate training Institute in early Spring (i.e., January 9-13, 2017 at Teachers College) where participants will develop skills to generate research and learn about ways in which mental health evidence-based practices inform and impact social policy. Specific focus areas will include, but not be limited to: understanding and identifying policy levers, impact writing, designing infographics for policy and message delivery, using applied practice-based sessions and culminating in a final day of outcome presentations.

Certificate of Training will be jointly awarded by Teachers College, Columbia University and University of Cambridge, UK upon successful completion. The institute will be conducted by the following experts:

Kai Ruggeri, Ph.D., Affiliated Lecturer and Senior Researcher in the Department of Psychology, Director of Policy Research Group at University of Cambridge

John Allegrante, PhD, Professor of Health Education at Teachers College, Columbia University

Helen Verdeli, Ph.D., Associate Prof. Teachers College, Columbia University, Director of Global Mental Health Lab at Teachers College, Columbia University
