Ellenor Mittendorfer-Rutz' research group
Mental health and social integration (Mente)
The overarching aim of Ellenor Mittendorfer-Rutz group is to bridge research traditions in psychiatric epidemiology and insurance medicine. The main interest is on including aspects of work ability and labour market inclusion in studies related to ethiology and prognosis of mental disorders and suicidal behaviour. The research group carries out epidemiological studies in three main research areas, namely: 1) ethiology and prognosis of youth suicidal behaviour; 2) mental disorders, comorbidity and work disability and 3) mental health and migration. The conducted studies consider a variety of risk and protective factors and the effect of social insurance regulations, health care and treatment on marginalisation processes. Emphasis is also put on potential differences in these processes in the native population compared to different migrant groups. Advanced analytical models allow capturing the heterogeneity in ethiology and prognosis of individuals with mental disorders.
