The Evidence Based Practices Institute at the Division of Public Behavioral Health and Justice Policy is the sponsor of Report on Emotional & Behavioral Disorders in Youth (EBDY), a quarterly journal published by Civic Research Institute, Inc. EBDY is edited by Eric J. Bruns, Ph.D., and Eric W. Trupin, Ph.D.

The goal of EBDY is to provide user-friendly information on the latest research findings and developments in the field on addressing emotional and behavioral problems in youth, and to serve as a bridge between child mental health researchers and practitioners, and to serve as a forum for the review and discussion of policies and programs relevant to the reform and improvement of systems of mental health care for youth.
