Personal profile

Personal profile

Suzanne’s main research interests are within the broad field of adult mental health. She is particularly interested in investigating the processes by which risk and protective factors influence mental health. Within this resilience framework, Suzanne has researched the influence that various social relationships (e.g., sense of belonging, social support, and relationship quality) have on the association between risk (e.g., depression) and outcome (e.g., suicidal ideation). Her research investigates resilience among a range of adult samples, with older adults and gay, lesbian, bisexual, and trans and gender diverse adults featuring prominently in her work. Recent work has focused on Joiner’s Interpersonal-Psychological Theory of Suicide. Suzanne offers postgraduate supervision within the broad context of resilience, which could include variables such as place of residence/geographical remoteness; living arrangements (alone/with others); social relationships, especially sense of belonging; depression; suicide; reasons for living; sexual and/or gender identity; and older adults.
