Michelle R. Munson is an associate professor of social work, with professional interests in mental health services and interventions, vulnerable populations of youth and young adults, and supportive relationships.
Dr. Munson’s research is focused on two related areas of behavioral health, mental health service engagement (e.g., service use, therapeutic alliance, investment), and the role of relationships and health beliefs (e.g., attitudes, perceptions of illness) in the process of engaging in care. Dr. Munson’s scholarship is informed by the views of adolescents and young adults that utilize services, the views of those they perceive support them, and the views of their providers.
Dr. Munson has published on natural mentoring relationships, depression, case management, the help-seeking process, and behavioral health literacy, among others topics. She has published in Psychiatric Services, Administration and Policy in Mental Health and Mental Health Services Research, Social Work Research, Children and Youth Services Review, and the Journal of Behavioral Health Services and Research.
Her research projects have been funded by the National Institutes of Health, private foundations, and the Ohio Department of Mental Health. As a social work practitioner and researcher, Dr. Munson is committed to conducting research that directly impacts behavioral health practice and policy.
