Teresa Brockie’s research focuses on achieving health equity through community-based prevention and intervention of suicide, trauma, and adverse childhood experiences among vulnerable populations.
A member of the White Clay (A'aninin) Nation from Fort Belknap, Montana, Brockie in 2011 led an all Native American team to collect data to study suicidal behavior among reservation-based Native American youth. Her current studies include promoting safe passage from adolescence to adulthood for Native American women through an innovative smartphone app that promotes healthy relationships and prevents gender based violence. She is also studying social networks among Native American caregivers to understand opioid use, suicide, and social network characteristics.
