Biography

I currently work as the research manager on the SOCITS project (a A SOCial sITuational Systems approach to measuring and modelling influences on adolescent mental health). This MRC funded project will create a new method for researchers, counsellors, teachers, and young people to conduct research about adolescent mental health. We will look at SOCial, sITuational Systems to help understand the reasons for things like loneliness, stress and poor mental health. So, we'll investigate how social situations, as well as how the physical settings in which they occur can impact on youth mental health. 

I have a PhD in Public Health and Health Policy from the University of Strathclyde, during this programme, I completed a long-term secondment at the McSilver Institute for Policy and Poverty Research at New York University, as well as multiple secondments to the Finnish Association for Mental Health in Helsinki. Prior to this, I studied for an MSc in Cognitive Neuroscience at UCL, and also worked in Clinical Psychology settings within the NHS.  

My research is grounded in public health approaches to promoting adolescent mental health.

My pervious ESRC Postdoctoral fellowship, focussed on barriers to young people’s help-seeking for mental health problems including aspects such as stigma, and low mental health literacy (or how much they know about mental health and mental health problems). The project had a particular focus on experiences of young people in rural and remote areas and followed a co-production approach to research and dissemination. I aim to work with adolescents to better understand what is important to them in relation to improving their mental health.

Previously, I've worked at the SPHSU on an ESRC grant investigating loneliness and wellbeing among adolescents and young people in the UK using secondary data analysis. 

 

 

Research interests

My research interests are focussed on aspects of adolescent mental health including:

  • Mental Health Literacy (MHL) in adolescence.
  • Associations between mental health literacy and help-seeking intentions.
  • Mental health stigma in adolescence and its impact on help-seeking intention.
  • Mental health stigma and its impacts in a rural context.
  • The social determinants of health, and health inequalities in adolescent mental health.
  • The relationships between loneliness and mental health and wellbeing.
  • Individual, social, and community risk factors for loneliness among adolescents and young people.
