PhD, LCSW, Research Scientist, Department of Psychiatry, University of Illinois at Chicago

Mary Bunn, PhD, LCSW is a Research Scientist at the University of Illinois at Chicago, Department of Psychiatry. She is also a faculty member and Co-Director of the Global Mental Health Research and Training Program in the UIC Center for Global Health and a clinical faculty member in the Mood and Anxiety Disorder Program where she provides therapy services to survivors of war and forced migration.

Her research program focuses on community-based mental health prevention and care interventions for survivors of war and political violence across the migration continuum. This involves bridging prevention and intervention research to integrate a spectrum of services that are used for communities with diverse needs. She is particularly interested in therapeutic processes and how to best mobilize social and family resources through interventions to enhance coping and wellbeing. Currently, she is leading research projects with Arabic-speaking refugee communities in Chicago and Jordan and recently evacuated Afghan families to develop family-based mental health services . Dr. Bunn’s research program is informed by her extensive clinical and applied experience including seventeen years working with survivors of torture and political violence in the U.S and in post-conflict and humanitarian settings around the world.
