Experience in LGBT2SQ research

I have a background in research and clinical practice with LGBT homeless youths with an emphasis upon sex trade-involved homeless youth. I also have experience in research and practice with LGBT persons with severe and persistent mental illness. Locally, through support from the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), my work has concentrated on facilitators and barriers relating to access to community resources in downtown Toronto.
