I am working in the Child and Adolescent Psychiatry research group and I am the Trial Manager for the Addressing Adolescents’ Depression And their ParenTing (AADAPT) study, funded by the Prudence Trust. This study involves developing and evaluating a Behavioural Activation and Parenting online intervention for adolescent parents supported by peer mentors. The study aims to improve parental mental health and enhance positive parent-child interactions.
I previously worked as a Trial Coordinator on the Child Anxiety Treatment in the context of COVID-19 (Co-CAT) study in the Topic Research Group in Experimental Psychology. This is one of the biggest randomised control trials to date in CAMHS in the UK for chid anxiety.
I have a number of years experience working on child and adolescent mental health studies. My research interests in general focus on common mental health difficulties young people experience and improving access to, and effectiveness of, psychological treatments.
