Mary Bitta

Dphil candidate

I am interested in cross-cutting issues in mental health in sub-Saharan Africa. My research evaluates interventions that aim to reduce the treatment gap for common mental disorders.

My DPhil project will evaluate the effectiveness of a stigma reduction intervention in rural coastal Kenya.  My DPhil studies are supervised by Professor Charles Newton, Professor Belinda Lennox and Dr Symon Kariuki.
