A study led by UWindsor researchers is one of the first on the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the mental health of children in Canada.
WE-Spark Health Institute announced $287,000 in grants to 14 innovative research projects in Windsor-Essex.
Two faculty members in the University of Windsor’s Department of Psychology have received a Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) Insight Development Grant for a new study looking at young people’s emotional experiences, specifically how those emotions fluctuate from day to day, as an indicator of later wellbeing in adolescence and early adulthood.
A new program to conduct psycho-educational assessments of local children and adolescents will provide “a gold-standard service,” says the faculty member heading up the project.
“We can take more time with cases,” says Sylvia Voelker, director of the Psychological Services and Research Centre. “We plan to conduct follow-up to see how the recommendations from the assessments are acted on.”
