Psychology professor recognized for early career achievements in child mental health research

The American Psychological Foundation (APF) has named Lindsay Malloy, assistant professor of psychology, the first recipient of the annual Division 37 Dianne J. Willis Early Career Award.

This prestigious award was created to honor talented young psychologists who are making contributions toward informing, advocating for, and improving the mental health and well-being of children and families, particularly through policy. Malloy will be acknowledged in the American Psychological Association’s monthly magazine for the award.

“I was absolutely thrilled to hear this great news,” Malloy said. “I’ve been able to work with so many wonderful people and it feels really great to have our collaborative research recognized by others in the field – by our peers – in this way. It feels like our research is getting out there and having an impact, so that feels really good.”
