National Center for Disaster Mental Health Research (NC-DMHR)

a PSC Research Project

Investigators:   Steven Heeringa, Trivellore Raghunathan

This project is in direct response to an RFA released by the National Institute on Mental Health (NIMH), and SRO/SRC is one member of a team lead by Dartmouth University that included the University of Michigan’s School pf Public Health, Yale University, and the Medical University of South Carolina. The RFA calls for two separate components: 1) the building and maintenance of an administrative core multidisciplinary Center that has a “viable and pre-positioned infrastructure for rigorous population based epidemiological investigations after major emergency events” and 2) conducting an actual scientific research projects in the event of a qualifying disaster.



This overall budget and work scope includes all aspects of the project, including building the administrative core infrastructure and actually completing the data collection work at the time of the disaster event. All data collection costs are somewhat hypothetical, since the final design will depend on the disaster location and type.



The ISR work will be conducted as a sub to UM’s School of Public Health; on the overall project, UM will be a sub to Dartmouth University. Sandro Galea is the UM PI, and the project team design assumes significant involvement of several SRC research staff (in addition to SRO activities)
