About

Dr. Perrino is a prevention scientist dedicated to promoting child and adolescent mental health, particularly in communities disproportionately affected by these health concerns. She is a trained and licensed clinical psychologist who completed a National Institute on Drug Abuse post-doctoral fellowship in drug abuse prevention. For more than 20 years, she has collaborated on research funded by the National Institutes of Health and Centers for Disease Control & Prevention to understand and reduce behavioral health disparities in HIV, drug abuse, obesity, and depression. Together with community stakeholders and public health students, Dr. Perrino works on programs that address mental, emotional and behavioral health problems in South Florida. Her current initiatives aim to strengthen resilience among socioeconomically disadvantaged youth through family and community-based interventions.
