Dr. Sean Joe holds a joint position as associate professor in the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Michigan's School of Medicine. He is a nationally recognized authority on suicidal behavior among African Americans, and his current research projects focus on black adolescents' mental health service use patterns, the role of religion in black suicidal behavior, salivary biomarkers for suicidal behavior, and development of father-focused, family-based interventions to prevent urban African American adolescent males from engaging in multiple forms of self-destructive behaviors (e.g., suicidal behavior).

He is the 2009 recipient of the Edwin Shneidman Award from the American Association of Suicidology for outstanding contributions in research to the field of suicide studies.  He earned hi PhD in Social Work from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and his MSW from SUNY Stony Brook.
