The Laboratory for Leveraging Evidence and Advancing Practice for Youth Mental Health Services (LEAP Lab) focuses on designing and testing mental health treatments that work in the real world for underserved children and adolescents. We examine the factors that promote and support the effective use of these treatments, and emphasize research-practice partnerships with community stakeholders in the clinics and schools where most youth receive services.
