Dr Kylie King

Dr Kylie King is a Senior Research Fellow at the Turner Institute for Brain and Mental Health at Monash University. Kylie worked as a psychologist before moving into a research role over ten years ago. She has since developed expertise in male suicide prevention research and program evaluation. Together, this research experience has led to a particular interest in the development and evaluation of public health interventions to bring about positive impacts on boys and men’s mental health and suicidality across the lifespan. Kylie was involved in the evaluation of Man Up – a media-based suicide prevention intervention aimed at men. She is leading an evaluation of a school-based suicide prevention intervention aimed at teenage boys and is also conducting research into the suicidality of men aged over 80, and workplace suicide prevention interventions for male-dominated industries. As a co-founder of the IASP SIG for Suicide Prevention for Boys and Men, Kylie is passionate about creating a global network to foster collaboration and knowledge sharing to bring about positive impacts for boys and men.
