Amy C. Lodge, Ph.D., is a research associate at the Steve Hicks School of Social Work’s Texas Institute for Excellence in Mental Health. She currently conducts research for several projects that focus on improving the quality of mental health care that Texans receive, including peer provider projects, a self-directed care pilot study, and a project aimed at increasing the competency with which behavioral health service providers provide care to LGBTQ individuals.

Lodge and colleagues recently developed the Recovery-Oriented Services Assessment (ROSA) – an accessible instrument that behavioral health organizations can use to measure the extent to which their services are recovery oriented.
