About Us

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.

The Global Psychiatric Epidemiology Group has three major areas of research:

  1. Children of parents involved with the criminal justice system;
  2. Children exposed to the 9/11 attack;
  3. International research on suicide and school mental health.
