Welcome to the HOPE Lab. HOPE stands for Healthy Outcomes and Psychosocial Equity. We strive to help people with intellectual and developmental disabilities achieve healthy outcomes, particularly mental health and wellness, through equitable access to evidence-based care. We do this through research that:

  • raises awareness of trauma and mental health symptoms in people with IDD.
  • improves assessments so that people who need help can get help.
  • improves service delivery so that people with IDD can experience healthy outcomes, community inclusion, and wellbeing.
