Harold E. Briggs has worked extensively on how mental health, substance abuse treatment, and child welfare systems service providers use evidence to improve child, adult, and family well-being. He is a leader in the development of psychological measures of African American well-being and has led psychometric studies of homophobia and fear of AIDS, as well as research concerning the perception of the African American experience and engaging African Americans in mental health services.
Briggs has been involved in community and system change efforts that have benefited community-based organizations of color. Throughout his professional career, Briggs has sought to train community members to be leaders and facilitators of community change efforts, so as to promote community self-governance and transformation.
