I have just submitted my qualitative systematic review, Patterns and meanings of traditional alcohol use in Indigenous cultures after the introduction of commercial alcohol. A systematic narrative review of qualitative research. In January I will submit it Addiction Research and Theory journal, the first publication from this research and I am the first author. Things are happening. Next year, Feb or March I hope, I will relocate back to Sabah. Three reasons for this move: Sabah is the most amazing place to live and work and I miss it; my research is with the Kadazandusun culture in Sabah; and I hope to be back working in the Universiti Malaysia Sabah again and working to set up the psychiatric and mental health units in Hospital UMS alongside my colleagues and friends. I am also in disucssion regarding the establishment of a youth mental health service in Sabah, and a project to look at how we can protect endagered species through influencing people to stop eating them, somehow..
Anyway… as we leave 2019 and this decade behind I am really looking forward to the new and amzing opportunities that are coming along. I am excited to move into the next chapter and I feel like a blog is a great way to document the journey// and e=lee
