Maya McGregor

Research Coordinator, BC Children’s Centre for Mindfulness and the BC Reproductive Mental Health Program; Department of Psychiatry, University of British Columbia

Maya graduated from Queen’s University with a bachelor’s degree in psychology. Throughout her academic career, she gained research experience as a research assistant in two labs, focusing on clinical research in mental health and psychology. Maya’s interest in mental health led her to conduct an honour’s thesis project that examined subjective perspectives of distress in people with early psychosis. 

Maya’s personal experiences with mindfulness as a way of bringing kindness and non-judgmental presence to her life sparked a research interest in the field.  She is interested in studying how mindfulness interventions can support mental health and well-being across diverse populations, including young people and families.
