Our research team is committed to conducting both applied and basic research addressing issues of mental health resilience in students of all ages. We focus on issues related to mental health in elementary, secondary, and post-secondary educational settings by examining emotion regulatory difficulties, stress, coping, mindfulness, and non-suicidal self-injury. We are very committed to outreach and support of youth/young adults who are struggling; to this end, our team provides workshops and online outreach and training around issues related to students’ mental health and wellness at every age. We commonly use participatory action research approaches, working together as equals with community-based partners and those with lived experience of mental health challenges and/or self-injury.
