About GPEG

Global Psychiatric Epidemiology Group (GPEG)

The Global Psychiatric Epidemiology Group (GPEG) is directed by Christina W. Hoven, DrPH, MPH. It is a multidisciplinary (including epidemiology, psychology, medical geography, psychiatry, etc.) research group, focused on understanding the development of psychiatric disorders and substance use by studying children as they mature.

Research is conducted both nationally and internationally, with funding from the National Institutes of Health (NIDA, NIMH, NICHD, etc.), CDC, the European Union, and more. The objectives of our investigations are to produce population-based knowledge that is generalizable, and inclusive of underserved and high-need groups, especially those of high public health relevance.
