Simon Bradstreet manages the EMPOWER (Early Signs Monitoring to Prevent Relapse and Promote Wellbeing, Engagement and Recovery) study. EMPOWER is an international collaboration researching digital technology for the identification of early warning signs in psychosis with funding from National Institute of Health Research Health Technology Assessment Programme. Prior to joining the University, Simon set up and led the development of the Scottish Recovery Network for 12 years. Previous experience has included the development of multi-agency monitoring and evaluation systems in the homelessness sector.
Simon has research interests in a number of areas. Through managing the EMPOWER trial he has an interest in the application of digital and mobile technology for the enhancement of self-management, autonomy and recovery in psychosis.
He has a longstanding interest in research on mental health recovery, encompassing lived experiences of recovery and narrative approaches as well as the development implementation of recovery focused policies and practices. Within this Simon has been involved in a variety of research and development projects related to peer support and self-management. Having a general interest in community based approaches and dialogue he is currently undertaking work to explore the feasibility of the Trialogue approach in Scotland.
Simon's PhD related to the internalisation of mental health stigma, specifically examining the role of adult attachment style in that process. He is now looking to develop new research opportunities in relation to internal stigma, relationships and recovery.
