She earned her B.A. in psychology from Washington University in St. Louis and her Ph.D. in clinical psychology from Duke University. Dr. Young completed her pre-doctoral internship at Virginia Treatment Center for Children, part of the Virginia Commonwealth University Health System, and her postdoctoral research fellowship in child and adolescent mood disorders at The Ohio State University. Through combined research and professional experiences as a license clinical psychologist, Dr. Young has expertise in clinical research, treatment and diagnosis of childhood mood disorders, empirical strategies to characterize impulsive aggression in youth, and children’s services research. Dr. Young’s research has focused on better understanding predictors and outcomes of children’s service use to inform policy and development of targeted interventions to improve overall access to quality services and children’s psychosocial outcomes. Dr. Young’s past research experiences have also included assessing the effects of nonpharmacologic interventions for childhood depression, bipolar disorder, and mood disorder comorbidities. Her current research focuses on how receipt of quality mental health services impacts long term outcomes (e.g., later substance use and mental illness/substance use comorbidities), particularly among youth who are at risk for mood disorders.
