Dr. Jan Beals, University of Colorado
Jan Beals PhD (University of Colorado) is a social psychologist at the American Indian and Alaska Native Programs, University of Colorado. As a co-principle investigator with Dr. Spero Manson, Dr. Beals has led the development and implementation of the first on-reserve Aboriginal mental health survey. This large landmark survey, funded by the National Institute for Mental Health, has provided some of the first systematic information on prevalence and correlates of mental disorders in Aboriginal on-reserve populations. Dr. Beals will collaborate with our group to utilize this landmark survey to test conceptual models of suicidal behaviour.
