It has just been announced that Hotıì ts’eeda and Mental Health Research Canada have awarded the new Įnı̀Gomǫò Whehdıı̀ Studentship to Mallory Minerson.
Mallory Minerson is currently a doctoral student in Psychiatry at the University of Alberta. She lives in Inuvik, Northwest Territories and is Regional Clinical Supervisor for Mental Health and Addictions for the Beaufort Delta Region. Her research project, “Decolonizing Clinical Documentation and Related Language Praxis: Chart as Co-Created Narrative Guide”, will explore how the language used when interacting with mental health professionals impacts patient experience and outcomes.
In response to receiving the scholarship, Mallory shared a statement.
“”I am honoured and grateful to have received this studentship, and hope that my examination of the language we use in our clinical documentation and communication will serve to increase measures of health equity for all Northerners’ mental health encounters.”
Hotıì ts’eeda and Mental Health Research Canada have sent their congratulations to Mallory, and have said that they look forward to supporting her in her work.
