Curriculum Vitae

Gregory B. Teague is an Associate Professor Department Chair in the Department of Mental Health Law & Policy. He received his Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology and Public Practice from Harvard University. His research interests have included a range of issues in behavioral health services research: fidelity to program models, effectiveness of consumer-operated services, involvement of persons with mental illnesses in the criminal justice system, performance measurement, self-directed care, cost-effectiveness of services for people with co-occurring serious mental illness and substance use disorders, consumer-provider relationships, and the impact of care coordination approaches within integrated behavioral and general health plans. His first measure of fidelity to assertive community treatment – an intensive service model for people with serious mental illnesses considered an essential program option within public service systems – came into wide use internationally and served as both the standard measure for this program and the prototype for later measures of fidelity to other evidence-based practices for this population; he and colleagues are currently evaluating the impact of their updated and expanded replacement measure, now also very widely adopted.

He has worked on several SAMHSA-sponsored national efforts in development and integration of performance measurement within behavioral health care, including the MHSIP consumer-oriented report card, standards for outcome measurement systems, and development and promulgation of common performance indicators and measures.

His teaching focuses on evidence-based practice in behavioral healthcare. He has also been active in faculty governance within USF, having served as president first of the USF Faculty Senate, then of the USF System Faculty Council, as USF Trustee, and as chair of several university-wide ad hoc committees.
