Current projects

I am the data manager and analyst of the Multicentre Study of Self-harm in England In this study we collect information on individuals who present to hospitals following self-harm. I study trends in self-harm over time and the relationship between socio-economic and clinical characteristics with clinical care and mortality.

I am the self-harm research lead in the OxWell School survey OxWell is a repeated cross-sectional school survey on mental health and well-being of school pupils in England. Within this study, I am exploring the impact of loneliness on adolescents’ mental health and well-being, help-seeking behaviour following self-harm and trends in self-harm over time.
