Drug Policy Reform
The focus of this group is examining how wider social factors influence mental health and drug use, with an emphasis on likely decriminalization of drug use as one of the most important Norwegian welfare state reforms over the past decades.
Intervention Gap Bridging
The group wishes to bridge the gap between policy, practice and research in current public health work, and together with Norwegian municipalities create a system that facilitates knowledge exchange between the academic, practicerelated and policymaking fields.
This researcher group will integrate and adapt the latest methods or causal inference developed in statistics, econometrics, and epidemiology, for observational studies in psychology, and develop an infrastructure for using mobile devices to gather data on mental health.
