Eleanor Bailey is a PhD candidate in Clinical Psychology at Swinburne University of Technology and has been a research assistant on the suicide prevention team at Orygen since 2014. Eleanor has worked across numerous youth suicide prevention projects, playing a leading or coordinating role in systematic reviews, Delphi studies, web-based surveys, and intervention studies in school and clinical settings. Eleanor is interested in examining how digital or social-media-based interventions may be used to support young people with suicide risk, particularly in clinical settings.
