Welcome to our Topical Interest Group (TIG) website!

Members of the Behavioral Health (BH) TIG are dedicated to promoting behavioral health and well-being of individuals, across the lifespan, who are at risk of or living with mental health, substance misuse, and other addictive disorders (e.g., gambling, eating disorders). We aim to improve behavioral health prevention, practice, and policy through the translation of knowledge and information gained through the systematic evaluation of practices, programs, policies, and service delivery systems.
