Researchers at Emory’s Rollins School of Public Health have opened a new center that aims to improve the lives of people with mental and substance use disorders.

The Center for Behavioral Health Policy Studies is bringing together a team of faculty, staff and students from Emory, Morehouse School of Medicine, Georgia Tech, the University of South Carolina, and the Carter Center Mental Health Program.

The center’s director, Dr. Benjamin Druss, says he hopes it will become “a center of gravity within the Atlanta community’’ to help people with these disorders.

Here’s a GHN video interview with Druss, courtesy of Emory, where he discusses mental health and substance abuse benefits, the Affordable Care Act, and the center’s work.
