    Population mental health, suicidality and epidemiology

Danielle has recently joined the University of Wolverhampton after completing her PhD at Ulster University in March 2015. She is is currently appointed as a Post-Doctoral Research Fellow in the Faculty of Education, Health and Well-being and specialises in population mental health, suicidality and epidemiology. Her research interests are supported by a strong knowledge of both qualitative and quantitative methodological approaches including structural equation modelling. She has experience of working with large epidemiological dataset having previously conducted analysis of data arising from the World Mental health Survey Initiative (e.g. NISHS, NCS-R). In her recent work, she has contributed to a number of interdisciplinary projects including the evaluation of the Headstart big lottery funded project surrounding the promotion of resilience in young people within the Wolverhampton area. In her own research, she has examined a number of distal (e.g. parental psychopathology) and proximal (e.g. stressful life events) factors implicated in the aetiology of suicidal behaviours. She is also interested in patterns of service use and help seeking behaviours among suicidal populations.
