Welcome to the REACh Lab

Research within the REACh Lab focuses on child, adolescent and emerging adult mental health promotion and risk reduction. Our primary research interest is in the area of mood disorders with a focus on adolescent depression. Specifically, our program of research examines (a) the developmental trajectories of mood disorders from childhood to adolescence to emerging adulthood, (b) school-based mood disorder and violence prevention programs, and (c) community-based programs that address the mental health needs of diverse populations, mainly Aboriginal youth.
