Dr. Brittany Rudd is a child psychologist as well as an Instructor of Psychiatry and Assistant Professor of Psychology and Law at the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC). She is the director of CAPACITY Lab—an interdisciplinary team of scientists who build Community Academic Partnerships to Accelerate Community Implementation of Treatments for Youth. The lab’s mission is to promote mental health equity through community-partnered research and implementation science. Key foci include the development and implementation of scalable mental health interventions (e.g., digital mental health services and brief interventions) and harnessing partnerships with community organizations (e.g., juvenile justice, family courts, schools, mental health agencies) to understand their service context and needs and support their ability to implement mental health interventions. In addition to leading CAPACITY Lab, Dr. Rudd directs the Child and Family Behavior Clinic in the UIC Psychiatry Department. There, she assesses and treats youth with externalizing disorders, as well as supervises externs, interns, and fellows.
