Dr. David Sheridan, Assistant Professor of Emergency Medicine, and his team at Oregon Health & Science University are developing a wearable device that assesses and reports the physiological measures associated with stress dysregulation and worsening suicidality. The goal is to help adolescents identify these symptoms and therefore allow time for interventions that can help prevent emergency department visits and suicide attempts.

OCTRI's Evaluation Core created a Translational Science Benefits Model* case study on the outcomes of this project and the resources that Dr. Sheridan leveraged, including OCTRI's Biomedical Innovation Program pilot funding and project support.
