    Lisa Fedina Awarded a 2020 Young Investigator Grant from the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention

    Assistant Professor Lisa Fedina was awarded a 2020 Young Investigator Grant from the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. She will conduct a national survey with young adults ages 18-24 to identify protective factors for suicide that promote resilience among young adults, particularly those most at risk.

    “We know that people often do not have isolated experiences with violence, but studies have not yet measured the range of victimization experiences in order to understand its full burden on mental health. This study represents an important step to build this underdeveloped area of research through theory-driven, person-centered approaches, allowing for greater accuracy in predicting suicidal behaviors by accounting for the effects of violence victimization over time and factors that may support resilient trajectories among youth,” says Fedina.
