TSU scientist receives an award for a work on suicide prevention

Anastasia Peshkovskaya, a researcher in the TSU Laboratory of Experimental Methods in Social and Cognitive Sciences, TSU Research Division, has been awarded an ECNP Excellence Award for her work on population-based suicide prevention. Award winners were named during the 34th European College of Neuropsychopharmacology held in Lisbon (Portugal) in a hybrid format.

The ECNP Excellence Award is established for young scientists living in European countries for outstanding works on mental health, psychiatry, and neuropsychopharmacology. 47 participants under 40 compete for the prize annually. The works are accessed by the ENCP Review Board (Utrecht, the Netherlands) and are awarded later during the ENCP Congress.

The award-winning study “How social media Big Data can improve population-based suicide prevention” by Anastasia Peshkovskaya is dedicated to increasing the effect of suicide prevention through a data-based targeted approach to different demographic groups. The results were presented in one of the congress’s sessions.
