About Us

Based in the Helen Bader School of Social Welfare at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, CABHR is a research center led by academic scientists with broad interests in behavioral health, criminal justice, methods and research evaluation, and children and families. Our interdisciplinary team conducts cutting edge epidemiological, intervention, and clinical research. Our scientists maintain collaborative partnerships in the Milwaukee metropolitan area, across the nation, and around the world.

Our Mission

CABHR is dedicated to multidisciplinary research that informs policy, enhances interventions for at-risk populations, and builds scientific understanding of the human condition. The Center supports its Scientists and Affiliated Scientists with a collaborative infrastructure, methodological training, and mentorship.

Our Vision

CABHR creates healthier communities through research that examines the conditions that place people at risk and the best ways to improve those conditions. CABHR will significantly augment the level of expertise needed to address issues of critical policy significance; the work of CABHR scientists will broaden the knowledge base for improving society.

Center Structure

The Center is organized into four study cores that foster and support collaborative work of Center Scientists and Affiliated Scientists focused on: (1) Behavioral Health (2) Children and Families, (3) Criminal Justice, and (4) Research Methods/Program Evaluation. The scientific efforts of these four cores are supported by centralized Administrative and Research Support Cores. The work of each study core is guided by a Core Leader. With the Center Director and the statistician, the four Core Leaders comprise the Core Leadership Team.
