MPC Primary Research Areas
Current studies explore the support systems of returning National Guard members as well as variation across independent, community-based veterans mental health councils. Conceptual work focuses on applying ecological frameworks to advance research on soldier reintegration, interventions for health equity, intervention sustainability, community mental health services and evidence-based psychological interventions. The overarching goal of my research is to identify and intervene with the complex, multilevel social and structural determinants of mental health. Previous work focused on describing and testing the effectiveness of community-based mental health services for immigrants and refugees.
