Sociology of Mental Health Research Cluster Mentorship Program

The purpose of this program is to connect students at all levels of training (undergraduate, master’s, doctoral, post-doctoral) with research interests in the Sociology of Mental Health to a faculty mentor with similar interests.  The relationship between a faculty mentor and a student will vary on a case by case basis, but will likely involve providing feedback on papers, guidance on research ideas, advice on graduate school, and support with professional development.

How to get involved

Students: Look over the list of faculty mentors and identify one with interests similar to your own. You can click on the faculty’s picture to get more details on their program of research and a link to their publications. Once you have chosen a potential faculty mentor, please send an email to that faculty mentor with a brief research statement and description of the type of support and training you are seeking.

Faculty: Please email the mentorship coordinator (jcomeau5@uwo.ca) with your research interests and contact information.
