Dr Natalie Aboustate - Postdoctoral Research Fellow
Robinson Research Institute, Adelaide Medical School, Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences.

I currently hold an academic position as the John M Nardo Post-doctoral fellow within the Critical and Ethical Mental Health group (Robinson Research Institute). Our team's mission is improve the understanding of and responses to mental health issues through the appraisal of evidence, claims, assumptions, attitudes, and beliefs. My research includes undertaking a Restoring Invisible and Abandoned Trials (RIAT) reanalysis of the Treatment for Adolescents with Depression Study (TADS) and a project on the language of mental health, which aims to enhance psychosocial care provided during the perinatal period by training clinicians to better manage social determinants of health.
