Mary Bitta

Dphil candidate

I am interested in cross-cutting issues in mental health  in sub-Saharan Africa. My research aims to understand the burden, barriers to treatment and treatment outcomes of  people with common mental disorders.

My DPhil project will evaluate the effect of implementing the Mental Health Gap Action Programme Intervention Guide on the treatment gap of common mental disorders in rural coastal Kenya.  My DPhil studies are supervised by Professor Charles Newton, Professor Belinda Lennox and Dr Symon Kariuki.
