Nicole Stadnick, PhD, MPH, is an Assistant Professor of Psychiatry at the University of California, San Diego and a licensed psychologist. Her research focuses on community-partnered implementation of evidence-based practices and tailored service delivery models to promote access to and engagement with mental health care for children and families. She leads and contributes to several projects that aim to adapt and test scalable prevention, treatment and implementation interventions in community-based health systems that provide care to children and families from diverse socioeconomic and racial/ethnic backgrounds. She has received NIH-funded fellowships from the Child, Intervention, Prevention, and Services Research Mentoring Network (2015-2016) and the Implementation Research Institute (2017-2018). Her current work is supported by a NIMH Mentored Patient-Oriented Research Career Development Award (K23MH110602) that uses implementation science theory and mixed methods to adapt and implement an integrated care model for children with autism spectrum disorder and co-occurring psychiatric conditions. In addition she co-leads the Implementation Science Evaluation Core for a project funded by the California Mental Health Service Authority aiming to understand the impact of digital mental health interventions delivered within county mental health services.
