Psychosis Research Program

Leading-Edge Research on Schizophrenia and Psychotic Disorders

The Psychosis Research Program (formerly called Commonwealth Research Center or CRC), based at the Massachusetts Mental Health Center (MMHC) and under the direction of Matcheri Keshavan, MD, is a program of the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center Department of Psychiatry, Harvard Medical School Department of Psychiatry (HMS) and the Massachusetts Department of Mental Health (DMH). The CRC was created in 1988 at the MMHC as an expression of a commitment by the Massachusetts DMH to rekindle its long-standing support for the leading-edge quality of clinical research on schizophrenia and related psychotic disorders that had long been a hallmark of MMHC.
