Consulting Psychiatrist, Cystic Fibrosis Program
Massachusetts General Hospital
Since 2005, Dr. Georgiopoulos has been working with the Massachusetts General Hospital Cystic Fibrosis (CF) Program to promote psychiatric resilience and optimal medical outcomes in children, adolescents, and adults with CF. Her research focus is to investigate the multimodal treatment of medically and psychiatrically complex individuals with CF and their caregivers, and to develop systems of care to improve their emotional wellness throughout the lifespan. She has played leadership roles in national guidelines on models of palliative care in CF and international guidelines on depression and anxiety screening and treatment in CF, with dissemination and implementation efforts in the US, Europe, and Australia. She coordinates mental health education and training aimed at individuals and families living with CF, multidisciplinary CF care teams, and mental health providers. Her current research in CF mental health includes studies of ADHD, substance misuse, and a multicenter RCT of a CF-specific cognitive behavioral preventive intervention. In 2018, Dr. Georgiopoulos received the Carolyn and C. Richard Mattingly Leadership in Mental Health Care Award from the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
