Maria O'Connell


 

Dr. O’Connell is an Assistant Professor at Yale University, Department of Psychiatry, and the Director of Research and Evaluation for the Yale Program for Recovery and Community Health (PRCH). She completed an NIMH National Research Services Award postdoctoral fellowship in Intervention and Disability Research at Yale in 2004 and is currently overseeing the research and evaluation components of several major projects at PRCH including Connecticut's SAMHSA-funded Mental Health Transformation State Incentive Grant, an NIMH-funded randomized controlled trial on the effectiveness of peer support, and an NIMH-funded concept mapping project examining components of social inclusion, among others. Dr. O'Connell has produced over 40 publications and has gained recognition for her work in the design and implementation of community-based and systems-level research and evaluation projects with a special emphasis on transforming mental health service delivery systems into recovery-oriented systems of care. She is the lead developer of the Recovery Self-Assessment (RSA)- a tool designed to assess perceptions of the degree to which a variety of objective recovery-oriented practices are manifest in mental health and addiction services agencies, which has been used in over 35 states and several countries. In addition to the assessment of recovery-oriented practices, her research interests include psychiatric advance directives, self-determination and choice, and supported housing.
