Research & Publications
Frances’ research is broadly related to increasing health equity for people in recovery from mental illness and substance misuse, especially those with intersecting marginalized identities.
Extensive Research Description
Frances' current and future research focuses on accessible, community-based interventions to increase health equity for people in recovery. Branches of her research focus on the development and evaluation of 1) peer-led programs in healthcare organizational settings, 2) individual- and systems-level interventions to reduce stigma and structural discrimination towards people in recovery, and 3) scalable, digital or arts-interventions for health promotion and prevention of mental illness and substance misuse. Her past research has maintained a general relation to marginalized identities, empowerment, and creativity.
