Research Interests

Dr. Campbell's research focuses on the mental health and service utilization of individuals from underserved groups experiencing symptoms of psychiatric disorders.  Specifically, she explores the illness and recovery experiences of Black Americans, particularly those with depression.  The goal of Dr. Campbell's research is not only to contribute to the existing scholarship on depression, help-seeking and service use among Black Americans, but also to push the field forward by taking into the account the heterogeneity of the Black American population.  By examining variations in their experiences, Dr. Campbell hopes to better understand mental illness in Black communities and design more culturally-informed and thus, -appropriate interventions aimed at improving Black Americans' mental health and wellness.
