DMHAS is a nationally recognized research leader among state mental health and substance abuse agencies. DMHAS researchers, with partners at the University of Connecticut, Yale University, Dartmouth College, Brandeis University, and the Mount Sinai School of Medicine, are currently investigating many issues of policy relevance in the mental health and addictions fields.

DHMAS research has received millions of dollars in federal funds to research such areas as supported housing, homeless families, criminal justice diversion, co-occurring mental health and substance abuse disorders, consumer-operated services, mental health service quality indicators, substance abuse treatment outcomes, and the prevention of substance abuse. DMHAS continues to conduct research to understand the processes underlying mental illness and substance abuse, and to evaluate new techniques to respond to them. Research conducted in Connecticut informs decision-makers about the effectiveness of treatment and preventative interventions. Study findings are also reported in professional journals and at national conferences.
