CPRSE Seeks Research Funding for Project about Youth and Mental Health

The CPRSE continues its fundraising efforts, in pursuit of its mission to work collaboratively with a growing group of non-academic community partners on issues of common concern. After much work this fall, CPRSE Director Ron Kuipers and Associate Director Allyson Carr prepared and submitted a funding application for a two-year research partnership with a local mental health care provider. The project seeks to apply a justice lens to the exploration of best practices for helping children and youth with complex needs. Defined as two or more needs that persist simultaneously over an extended period of time, complex needs include street involvement and issues related to mental health.
