Congratulations to Dr. Quynh Doan, Associate Professor in the Division of Emergency Medicine, UBC Department of Pediatrics. She was a successful applicant to the Fall 2018 Strategic Investment Fund call. The Faculty of Medicine created the Strategic Investment Fund to advance the objectives of the faculty’s strategic plan, Building the Future.
Dr. Doan’s project is titled Helping Students Identify and Manage Mental Health Issus in the Post-secondary Setting. She is investigating modifications to the existing clinical psychosocial evaluation tool for children and adolescents into an eHealth version for use by young adults at UBC to validate its ability to enable early self-detection of mental health issues among UBC students and facilitate their connection with appropriate health resources. This will be a platform for future research into how self-assessment influences students’ help-seeking behaviours and their beliefs and attitudes about healthcare seeking.
