David Miller (2014 - Present)

I began working with Dr. Ronis and the UNB Youth and Family Lab in September of 2014 as a Masters student in the Applied Health Services Research program. My research throughout that program focused on examining the predictors of readmission to psychiatric inpatient care among children and youth in New Brunswick using population-scale provincial administrative data. I have since transitioned into the Clinical Psychology program as a PhD student, and am continuing my use of that provincial administrative data by examining the predictors of psychiatric length of stay among youth and adults in the province. I completed my undergraduate study at the University of Prince Edward Island (BA Arts, Honours Psychology) and spent several years following that degree working on various research projects across several Canadian universities before committing to the MAHSR program here at UNB. My current research interests focus pertain to the availability and accessibility of mental health care services in Atlantic Canada, with a focus on underserviced areas. In the future, I hope to expand this research beyond provincially and privately provided supportive services to examine the relationship between service use and related familial support factors.
