Timothy Schmutte, PsyD



I am a clinical psychologist, mental health services researcher, and adjunct professor. I have worked in a range of clinical settings including outpatient clinics, community mental health centers, inpatient settings, and as a consultation liaison in primary care. I completed specialized training at the Master- and doctoral-level in clinical geropsychology and have worked with older adults and their families in the community, long-term care facilities, and outpatient settings.

My current research and evaluation activities focus on two national studies using Medicaid/Medicare data. One study examines the service use patterns, predictors, and outcomes of attempted suicide in older adults. The other project focuses on recovery-oriented care and treatment outcomes for adults with serious mental illnesses. My other research interests include the role of sleep quality in physical and mental health and active self-management programs for chronic illnesses.

For the last 15 years, I have also enjoyed teaching a range of psychology, counseling, and research courses to undergraduate and graduate students.
