The UW ALACRITY Center (UWAC) is a research center funded by the National Institute of Mental Health. The UWAC assembles expertise from various UW schools and departments, including the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, Department of Family Medicine, Department of Human Centered Design and Engineering, Department of Computer Science and Engineering, Department of Communications, and the School of Social Work. Our interdisciplinary team of researchers work to improve access to and use of evidence-based psychosocial interventions in non-traditional care settings. We also fund interdisciplinary pilot projects through our R03 program.
