Ellie Taylor

My research foci relate to the age group of young and emerging adults, mental health, social justice, and healthcare equity. Broadly, I am interested in how stigma, social and economic inequality, and resource deprivation result in differential health outcomes (e.g., depression) for young people. I am further interested in the potential for evidence-based treatment to address these disparities on individual and systemic levels. In my current lab, I am excited to be involved with the Resilient, Empowered, Active Living – Telehealth (REAL-T) Study, which aims to empower youth to manage their diabetes through developmentally appropriate client-centered interventions. Prior to becoming an OT, I was privileged to work in clinical and research capacities with young adults experiencing First Episode Psychosis (FEP).
