The ScattergoodEthics Program
elevates the conversation about
ethical issues in behavioral health care.
We leverage the latest medical ethics research to inform mental health policy and practice.
We train a new generation of bioethicists and behavioral health professionals in bioethics theory and practice.
Mental Illness & Criminal Justice

What is a mental disorder? Discover projects on psychiatric categories, diagnoses, and the ethical implications thereof.
We are in the mist of a psychedelics renaissance. This may bring novel ways to treat mental illness and human suffering, but also new ethical challenges.

Social Media & AI
We are uncovering how algorithmic bias effects behavioral health, from internet based addictions to contagions of mental illness.
