I am clinical-community psychologist and research faculty here in our Department, and a research investigator at the VA VISN-5 MIRECC. My research focuses on outcomes and change processes for psychosocial interventions regarding mental health recovery, psychiatric rehabilitation, and serious mental illnesses, using both quantitative and qualitative methods. Current content areas include societal and internalized stigma regarding mental illness, preventing the development of self-stigma, the impact of anticipated stigma on recovery and community participation, consumer navigation of early episodes of psychosis and services, the impacts of Mental Health First Aid as a public education program, and consumer and family led self-help and support programs.
