His areas of research have been the epidemiology of mental disorders and the analysis of treatment results. As a researcher in the epidemiology of mental disorders, he has conducted studies on the prevalence and impact of disorders on the general population and the treatment of mental disorders in primary care. His latest studies focus on the determinants of healthy ageing, analyzing both the impact of physical and mental comorbidity and the effect of social and environmental aspects. In health outcomes, he has been interested in the consequences of mental disorders on patients' functioning and quality of life and on their impact on society at large.

Dr Haro is a lead researcher on one of the CIBERSAM network groups. In 2011, he was awarded the prize for the best researcher of the Spanish Society of Biological Psychiatry.
