Brittany N. Rudd, PhD completed her doctoral training at Indiana University in 2018 after completing her pre-doctoral clinical internship at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. She is currently an NIMH T32 postdoctoral fellow at the Penn Center for Mental Health at the University of Pennsylvania. While at Indiana, Dr. Rudd was supported by NSF and NICHD fellowships to engage in community-based research to evaluate and optimize programs utilized by families served by the family court system. Since graduating, she has broadened her scope of research in court settings to include juvenile justice populations. She is currently engaging in a line of research to increase the adoption and implementation of suicide prevention practices within the juvenile justice system. The long-term goal of her research program is to transform non-traditional behavioral health settings (e.g., courts, juvenile justice) into hubs of evidence-based prevention and intervention to empower and improve outcomes for disadvantaged and vulnerable youth who may never access behavioral health services in traditional outpatient settings.
