​Mental and Behavioral Health


The Addiction & Psychiatric Research Initiative and Mentorship Network (A-PRIME) is composed of Kaiser Permanente Northern California (KPNC) mental health clinicians and researchers that supports, organizes, executes, and disseminates the results of clinically relevant, mental health research. Its mission is to provide a collaborative and welcoming venue for clinician-researchers to build knowledge and skills in mental health research; to collaborate and learn from colleagues; and to carry out high-quality mental health research that improves care for KPNC patients. A-PRIME's mission is strengthened by a robust relationship with the KPNC Division of Research's Center for Addiction and Mental Health Research.
