Bio

Dr. Camille R. Quinn joined the faculty at The Ohio State University (OSU) College of Social Work in 2016. Drawing from prior clinical and administrative experience in social and health services with children and families involved with or at risk of involvement with the juvenile/criminal and child welfare systems, Quinn investigates mechanisms that underlie individual and structural barriers associated with recidivism and comorbid mental health disparities. Her mixed methods research is guided by race-based, criminological, and social determinants of health theories to inform and culturally tailor interventions for youth of color to reduce their recidivism and mental health burden. In 2018, Dr. Quinn was appointed to the Ohio Governors’ Council on Juvenile Justice for a two-year term (2018-2020). Currently, Dr. Quinn is a Co-Investigator on an NIMH-funded R01 “Identifying periods of high risk and predictors of suicide for youth in public child serving systems” to develop an algorithm to assess suicide risk of youth involved in public-serving systems (juvenile justice, vital statistics, etc.). She is also partnering with the Ohio Department of Youth Services to investigate and racial differences in aggression, criminal offense, and comorbid mental health problems (trauma, substance use and suicidal thoughts and behaviors) while in corrections, as well as structural barriers associated with recidivism and mental health problems when they re-enter society. In addition, she is launching a multi-city mixed methods pilot study with young adults and providers to explore the effect of structural and systemic barriers on youth desistence from crime, complex associations between the involvement of systems and intersectional structural factors among African American youth. This work is informed by specialized training in mixed methods (Harvard University) and the prevention and intervention of suicide and violence research (University of Rochester). Dr. Quinn is also Affiliated Faculty in the Center for Health Equity Research in the School of Medicine, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
