Filling the gaps in the continuum of care for addictions

Professor John Cunningham works in the intersection between clinical and population health. He is currently the Deputy Director of the Centre for Mental Health at the Australian National University. Prior to taking up this position, John was the Canada Research Chair in Brief Interventions for Addictive Behaviours.

His research is driven by the question, "how do people change from addictive behaviors?" To answer this question, John has combined population research methods with clinical and other research traditions. The findings from these studies have been translated into a series of brief interventions for people with hazardous alcohol use, or other addictions concerns, that can be applied in treatment or community settings.
