Research Day



Research DayAnnual Community Mental Health Research Day Conferences began in January 2011 as a means to share the findings of research and evaluation projects involving Detroit Wayne Integrated Health Network stakeholders and their academic partners. The daylong conference includes oral keynote presentations from nationally-renowned leaders in the behavioral health field, poster presentations, brief workshops, and opportunities to network with new partners in the community mental health field. Each year, the conference has a different theme to highlight the many areas of community mental health:


  • 2013 Research Day will focus on child and adolescent mental health with keynote presentations on adolescent substance abuse and child/adolescent depression.
  • 2012 Research Day focused on research related to developmental disabilities, with a keynote presentation on autism.
  • 2011 Inaugural Research Day celebrated all types of local research and evaluation activities, with keynote presentations on adolescent suicide and obsessive compulsive disorder in children.
