RESEARCH INTERESTS

 

Hello, my name is Janelle Goodwill and I am an

Assistant Professor at the University of Chicago

School of Social Service Administration.  

  My reserach explores topics at the intersections of mental health, race and gender- with a particular focus on suicide and depression in Black Americans. In doing so, I employ a series of qualitative and quantitative methods to explore psychological factors that promote mental wellness and prevent adverse outcomes (e.g. suicide ideation and attempt). 

I earned my MSW, MS, and PhD in Social Work and Psychology from the University of Michigan. Additionally, I completed my undergraduate studies at Michigan State University. Information detailing some of my published works is listed below.
