Investigates trends in emergency department mental-health presentations in youth

Gabrielle Beaudry is a PhD candidate in the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Oxford, supervised by Dr Rongqin Yu and Prof Seena Fazel (Forensic Psychiatry Research Group). Her research interests include psychiatric epidemiology, forensic psychiatry and developmental psychopathology. Gabrielle’s research uses population-based datasets to examine the relationship between mental illness, violence and recidivism amongst people in prison and those released from prison. Another focus of her work is evidence synthesis (systematic review and meta-analysis) and risk prediction models.

Gabrielle is also a visiting doctoral researcher at the CHU Sainte-Justine (Université de Montréal) and the Douglas Mental Health Institute (McGill University), where she collaborates with Dr Nicholas Chadi and Dr Marie-Claude Geoffroy. Thus far, she has examined trends in mental health-related emergency department visits in children and adolescents, with respect to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Gabrielle holds a BA in Psychology from the Université of Sherbrooke. Her current research is funded by the Fonds de recherche du Québec – Santé.
