Cross-disciplinary teams help decisionmakers advance solutions to improve the effectiveness of social programs; support marital and family well-being; raise people out of poverty, improve the lives of older adults, disabled populations, and their caregivers; and further the positive development of children, youth, and young adults. The program also develops and evaluates prevention and treatment programs to address substance use and abuse, mental health, active and independent living, and other factors that are critical for well-being.
