Dr. Jenkins’ program of research focuses on optimizing mental health outcomes for Canadians throughout the life course through collaborative, mental health promotion strategies; health services and policy redesign; and knowledge translation approaches. She has worked with youth and adult populations and in both rural and urban settings. Her current research focuses on better understanding how context influences mental health outcomes among young people and developing and utilizing population-level knowledge translation approaches to facilitate effective, community-based mental health promotion that is evidence-informed and contextually responsive.
