About Jinette Comeau

Dr. Jinette Comeau is a sociologist who develops innovative quantitative methods to research inequalities in children’s mental health linked to socioeconomic indicators of risk (income, poverty, core housing need, food insecurity, social assistance, neighbourhood disadvantage) and examines policy levers available to governments to mitigate their adverse consequences.

Children's Health Collaborators: Graham Reid, Kelly Anderson and Piotr Wilk

The long-term goal of Dr. Comeau’s research is to examine and evaluate policy levers available to governments to reduce the effects of those inequalities.
