Welcome to the home page of the MJB-Brandeis Collaboration on Mental Health.
Against the background of the rollout of Israel’s reform of the mental health care system, and MJB’s national evaluation of this reform, the MJB-Brandeis Collaboration on Mental Health provides a forum for a professional exchange on mental health care policy.
The Collaboration brings together researchers from the Smokler Center for Health Policy Research and Brandeis’s Schneider Institutes for Health Policy, along with additional experts from the United States and Israel.
The work of the Collaboration is supported by the Bronfman Philanthropies.
Components of the Collaboration include literature reviews and responses, webinars, seminars, and professional staff exchanges.
