Scientific Advisory

Jeffrey R. Lacasse, PhD

Scientific Advisor, Florida State University
“There is a significant gap between what the research data shows and what mental health clients hear from clinicians, the media, and advertisements. The Foundation is working to close this gap.”

Lacasse is assistant professor in the College of Social Work at Florida State University in Tallahassee. His research focuses on barriers to effective knowledge dissemination in mental health practice (such as direct-to-consumer advertising and ghostwriting) and interventions to improve the flow of accurate information to clinicians, clients, and the general public. With colleagues, Lacasse recently completed a mixed-methods study of functional recovery among clients formerly labeled as severely mentally ill.
