The overall aim of my research is to promote mental health recovery among women who have experienced trauma, serious mental illness, and homelessness. Guided by principles of social justice and using a community-engaged research approach (CEnR), I hope to gain insight into the process of recovery and exit from homelessness for these women. In partnership with community members who are consumers of the mental health care system and often with the involvement of undergraduate students, I have completed funded research projects resulting in numerous scholarly publications and presentations. My primary teaching responsibilities are in the Graduate and Undergraduate programs.
