Ms. Shay-Lee Bolton (nee Belik),
Shay-Lee completed her Master of Sciences in the Department of Community Health Sciences in August 2008 at the University of Manitoba. Her thesis work focused on a comparison of suicidal behavior in an American Indian on-reserve population and a US general population sample, illustrating the differences in prevalence and risk factors for suicidal behaviors between these two populations. Shay-Lee's research interests lie in the areas of mental health, psychiatric epidemiology, suicidal behaviours, traumatic life events, at-risk populations, military mental health, and Aboriginal populations. Shay-Lee was supported by a Canadian Institutes for Health Research Canada Graduate Scholarship-Masters Award, a Manitoba Health Research Council studentship, and the Western Regional Training Centre studentship during her Masters program of research. She is currently supported by a Canadian Institutes for Health Research Charles Banting and Fredrick Best Doctoral Research Award. In October 2007, Shay-Lee was awarded a CIHR Brain Star Award for her recent publication on traumatic events and suicidal behaviours.
