Mission: FIU-BRIDGE (Florida International University – Banyan Research Institute on Dissemination, Grants, & Evaluation) is a university-community partnership with Banyan Health Systems, the largest provider of outpatient substance abuse, mental health, and integrated health/behavioral health care treatment in Miami-Dade and Broward counties. FIU-BRIDGE is a multidisciplinary prevention research group devoted to the design, implementation, and evaluation of community-based prevention and brief intervention strategies for reducing risk behavior problems among youth.The overarching goal of FIU-BRIDGE is to expand the breadth and depth of rigorous community-based research on the prevention and treatment of primary health, substance use, and mental health challenges and their comorbidity among children and adults. Our ultimate goal is to improve the health and well-being of under-represented, under-served, at-risk populations; i.e., mitigate health disparities.
