Kimberley Hoagwood, PhD, is Professor of Clinical Psychology and Psychiatry at Columbia University, specializing in children’s mental health services research.  She also works with the Division of Child and Family Services and the Office of Performance Measurement and Evaluation at the New York State Office of Mental Health (NYSOMH).   Before coming to New York, she was Associate Director for Child and Adolescent Mental Health Research with the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), and oversaw the portfolio of research on child and adolescent mental health, from basic to applied studies.  This gave her a broad perspective on research gaps and opportunities for connecting different areas of science.  She also served as Scientific Editor for the Office of the Surgeon General’s National Action Agenda on Children’s Mental Health with Dr. David Satcher.

Dr. Hoagwood is Director and PI of a new P30 Advanced Center on Implementation and Dissemination Science in States for Children and Families, funded by NIMH, and of the Children’s Technical Assistance Center, funded by NYSOMH.  She is also Principal Investigator on several other major grants and subcontracts, all focused on improving the quality of services for children and families.   Her special emphasis is on parent engagement, empowerment as well as the organizational and policy contexts for children’s mental health services.
