Research Advisor/Mentor – Dr. James Overholser
Research Interests – I am interested broadly in researching depression, suicide risk, and clinical advancements in treating suicidal adults. I am particularly interested in the overlap of scientific research and clinical application, especially in high-risk populations (i.e. individuals with chronic or acute suicidal ideation).
