This website  has some information about my work, publications and CV.

Please click on the links below to find out about my main research and clinical interests which include:

1. Understanding how Child and Adolescent Mental Health services can better meet the needs of children and young people.

We are currently running the  Online Pupil Survey– which in 2019 was completed by over 4000 students in 36 Oxfordshire schools, and is currently recruiting for the 2020 survey to completed by pupils at home in Oxfordshire, Wiltshire, South Gloucestershire and Berkshire. The information for this study for Parents, Pupils and Schools are here. The results from this work will inform how we can better develop  school-based mental health services which is one of my main interests.

We have also been involved in trying to evaluate the impact of a number of initiatives across child mental health services, including our work in schools. Here is the protocol of our study and please contact me if would like a copy of final report. We are also studying the mental health impact of school-based peer mentoring, part of which is a systematic review of studies, as well as a pilot of an intervention in some secondary schools.
