About the AIMS Center

The Advancing Integrated Mental Health Solutions (AIMS) Center at the University of Washington is a group of faculty, staff and consultants dedicated to improving the health of populations by advancing the research and implementation of Collaborative Care, a specific model of integrated care developed at the University of Washington to treat common and persistent mental health conditions such as depression and anxiety. The AIMS Center was founded by Jürgen Unützer, an internationally recognized psychiatrist and health services researcher who has spent the past twenty years developing innovative integrated care models and translating research on evidence-based behavioral health interventions into effective clinical and public health practice.
