Dr. Rosalie A. Torres Stone, Ph.D., is currently Assistant Professor of Psychiatry
and the Director of the Multicultural Core for the UMMS Center for Mental Health Services
Research. Her empirical work on mental health extends existing conceptual frameworks by
including sociocultural-specific factors in examining access to mental health services
and health related outcomes for racial and ethnic minority populations. Joining the
center in FY ’07, she continues to bring forth her commitment to multicultural informed
and guided research by complementing existing faculty members’ strengths in this area,
developing the cultural competence agenda at the center and at the Massachusetts
Department of Mental Health, and increasing faculty competence through self-evaluation
and consultation. She is currently the Co-PI on a grant from the Department of Veterans
Affairs, Veterans Health Administration Health Services Research and Development Quality
in which is developing cultural adaptations to evidenced based supported education
programs for Latino OIF/OEF veterans with disabilities including PTSD. She is also the PI
on a National Institute of Rehabilitation and Disability Research (NIDDR) funded pilot
study investigating the impact of mental illness on job seeking experiences for young
adults with serious and persistent mental illness.
