Assistant Psychologist (Research)
I am a research assistant in the O-CAP team, working mainly on Managing Adolescent Psychosis: A Feasibility Study (MAPS).
MAPS is a randomised controlled trial, funded by the HTA, to establish the effectiveness of antipsychotic medication vs. psychological intervention vs. a combination of both, in adolescents with first episode psychosis. This study is being conducted as a result of a direct research recommendation in the NICE guideline CG155.
I completed my BSc Psychology degree at the University of Birmingham (UOB), and my MSc in Clinical Mental Health at University College London (UCL).
