The Child and Adolescent Mental Health Project


The work of CAMHP involves collaborative research integrating work from the research labs of Drs. Cindy Huang and Christine Cha to improve early detection and intervention on high risk behaviors among ethnically diverse and high-risk youth.

Current Projects

Adapting Measures of High Risk Behaviors into the Family Check-Up

Our study will test the feasibility of the Family Check-Up (FCU), a family centered preventive intervention that focuses on reducing child mental and behavioral health problems through positive parenting behaviors for youth who have engaged in self-harm. The adaption of such measures into the FCU will allow for improved understanding of how parenting behaviors may impact, and mitigate self-injurious behaviors in early adolescents. The study will focus on recruiting and examining these behaviors in a diverse sample of adolescents in New York City through collaborations with community agencies and schools such as the Hamilton-Madison House.
