    Collapse Overview
    I am a clinical psychologist with research and clinical interests focused on 1) cultural influences to mental health conceptualization, assessment, and treatment, and 2) accessible and culturally appropriate evidence-based services for vulnerable youth and families worldwide.

    After my doctoral training at Marquette University and predoctoral internship at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) specializing in evidence-based psychosocial services for youth with Attention-Deficit, Hyperactivity/Impulsivity (ADHD), I received a Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Award for Individual Postdoctoral Fellows with a project entitled “Culturally Sensitive School-Home Behavioral Program for Latino Children with ADHD” funded by the National Institute of Mental Health. This mixed-method investigation of the Collaborative Life Skills (CLS) program inspired my subsequent National Institute of Health Fogarty Global Health fellowship pilot-testing an adapted version of CLS (CLS-FUERTE) in Culiacan, Mexico. This project represented the first known effort to implement and evaluate an adapted evidence-based behavioral school-home intervention to improve youth attention and behavior in Latin America. Most recently as Assistant Professor and Attending Psychologist in Psychiatry at UCSF, I serve as Co-PI on a UCSF Resource Allocation Program (RAP) Digital Mental Health Award aiming to implement and evaluate a manualized Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) group for adolescents experiencing depression augmented with digital health technology (i.e., HealthySMS, a text-message platform). I also collaborate on a Department of Education grant to develop a web-based professional development program for school mental health providers learning and implementing a behavioral treatment for youth with attention and impulse-control difficulties. Additionally, I collaborate with the UCSF Juvenile Justice Behavioral Health (JJBH) team on projects aiming to implement and evaluate gender-responsive services to girls ages 12-24 in the community.

    Let’s Text! Improving Engagement in Depression Services for Diverse Teens.
    UCSF Resource Allocation Program (RAP) Digital Mental Health Award Jul 1, 2019 - Jun 30, 2020
    Role: Co-PI
    Role Description: Recent applications of innovative mobile health (mHealth) tools, such as text messaging (SMS), hold promise for increasing evidence-based intervention effectiveness in diverse, depressed teens. This project aims to evaluate the effectiveness, mechanisms, and efficacy of CBT group with and without adjunct text messaging as the first-line service for depressed teens at two UCSF mental health clinics: Langley Porter Psychiatric Hospitals and Clinics and Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital (ZSFG). Dr. Haack’s role includes initiating and supervising service implementation at the public-funded site (ZSFG) and qualitative data collection/analysis.
