How does my research help children?

One in five youth have a mental health disorder.  My current research focuses on improving access to effective treatments for mental health disorders in children and youth, e-mental health applications and strategies to reduce wait times for children's mental health services.  Other areas of research include anxiety and depression in children and youth and their treatment, as well as the factors that increase the effectiveness and accessibility of Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy.
