My name is Jillian Halladay. I am a Registered Nurse working in Child and Youth inpatient and emergency mental health. I am also a graduate student in Health Research Methodology focusing on Mental Health and Addictions Clinical Epidemiology. As a nurse and researcher, I have helped develop and implement a healthy coping and substance use initiative for post-secondary students including both group and one-on-one counselling.
I am also working on various research projects focusing on risk factors of and interventions for depression, anxiety, suicidal behaviours, substance use, general distress and mental wellbeing among youth and young adults. In addition to school and work, I am training for my first natural bikini fitness competition and, most importantly, a proud PrOATein Ambassador.
