Request for Proposals on Connecting Emotional Well-being Interventions to Health Outcomes: To encourage innovative study of how promoting emotional well- being (EWB) can benefit health and longevity.
NEW B will provide funding for 3 to 5 projects that examine the mechanisms that underlie potential effects of EWB promoting interventions on downstream biobehavioral health outcomes.
Applications are due December 16, 2022.
The Network for Emotional Well-being and Brain Aging NEW Brain Aging) is based primarily in the departments of psychiatry at the University of Rochester (UR) Medical Center and Stanford, with collaborators at Hopkins, Duke, and UC Santa Cruz ( https://www.newbrainaging.org ). At UR we host an NIMH-funded T32 postdoctoral fellowship in suicide prevention for which we are now accepting applications.
Located within the UR Center for the Study and Prevention of Suicide (UR/CSPS), the CSPS Postdoctoral Program in Suicide Prevention Research (T32 MH20061) is now in its 23rd year with Yeates Conwell, MD (MPI of NEW Brain Aging) and Kim Van Orden, PhD as co-directors. It provides two years of stipend support and related benefits for early career investigators committed to careers in suicide prevention research. Each fellow works closely with a mentoring team, takes courses and participates in a diverse array of CSPS research and training activities. A strength of the UR/CSPS fellowship is the provision of intensive mentorship in grant writing, study design, and data analysis from UR/CSPS core faculty dedicated to suicide prevention.

Dr. Suldo’s research interests include positive psychology applied to youth, including children
and adolescents’ subjective well-being (e.g., positive indicators of well-being and a dual factor model of mental health, interventions to promote students’ subjective well-being, how adolescents’ mental health is influenced by parent child and student teacher relationships), the social emotional functioning of high school students participating in accelerated curricula such as Advanced Placement (AP) and International Baccalaureate (IB) programs, and the provision of evidence-based school mental health services in a multi-tiered framework.

New webinar series focused on biological processes that underlie linkages between emotional well-being and physical health
The Network for Emotional Well Being: Science, Practice, and Measurement announces a new webinar series focused on biological processes that underlie linkages between emotional well-being and physical health. In some cases biological systems are best known for their association with dysfunction or disease ( e.g. inflammation, cortisol); this workshop series aims to examine how biological systems and patterns of activation might be uniquely associated with emotional well-being and help promote health.
Our first seminar focuses on the Autonomic Nervous System and will be held on Tuesday, October 25 9:00am to 1:00pm pacific time virtually via Zoom Webinar.
