This is the new website for the Healthy Families Lab. Take a minute and look around at our current team and projects. Our research team focuses on better understanding the relationship between physical health and mental health in Chicago’s families. We are interested in how contextual, cognitive, and interpersonal factors modify the impact of stressors on depression, obesity, and health-risk behaviors. We are also interested in working with community-based partners to develop and test the effectiveness of preventions and interventions to address these problems.
