Dr. Dorothy Espelage Receives 4-year R01 from NIMH/NIH

Dr. Dorothy Espelage recently received a 4-year RO1 from the National Institute of Mental Health/NIH: Synthesis of Trials to Prevent Suicide Risk Behavior in Sexual and Gender Minorities.  This is a collaborative project with Hendricks Brown’s team at Northwestern University. This project will test whether prevention programs that target suicide directly, or a range of factors that increase risk for suicide (internalizing symptoms, alcohol abuse, drug use, externalizing, bullying and interpersonal violence) reduce suicide risk for youth in general, and whether (SGM) youth benefit more or less from such programs. Findings will direct the next generation of prevention trials for at-risk populations.
