Ms. Shay-Lee Bolton (nee Belik),
Ms. Bolton completed her Master of Sciences in the Department of Community Health Sciences in August 2008 at the University of Manitoba. Her thesis work focused on a comparison of suicidal behavior in an American Indian on-reserve population and a US general population sample, illustrating the differences in prevalence and risk factors for suicidal behaviors between these two populations. Ms. Bolton's research interests lie in the areas of mental health, psychiatric epidemiology, suicidal behaviours, traumatic life events, at-risk populations, military mental health, and Aboriginal populations. Over the course of her schooling, Ms. Bolton's research has been supported by a Canadian Institutes for Health Research Canada Graduate Scholarship-Masters Award, the Canadian Institutes for Health Research Charles Banting and Fredrick Best Doctoral Research Award, two Manitoba Health Research Council studentships, and a studentship from the Western Regional Training Centre. In October 2007, Shay-Lee was awarded a CIHR Brain Star Award for her publication on traumatic events and suicidal behaviours.
