Korten Prize Winner
17 January 2017

Congratulations to Jennifer Ma who was awarded The Korten Prize for Best Published Research Paper by a PhD Candidate for 2016.

The paper was the first systematic review to comprehensively examine the current evidence for the Interpersonal-Psychological Theory of Suicide. One judge commented that the paper was “a strong and well conducted systematic review with clear and significant implications for the field and identified important directions for future research. It provides a solid contribution for our understanding of suicide and the prevention and treatment of suicidal behaviour.”

The Korten Prize was created in memory of Mrs Ailsa Korten who worked as a research officer in the CMHR between 1986 and 2005. Ailsa Korten published over 120 research papers during this period.
