Institution: Greater Manchester Mental Health NHS Trust / University of Manchester, England.
Supervisory team: Dr Sarah Peters, Yvonne Awenat, Prof Gillian Haddock and Dr Trish Gooding.
Position: Research Assistant
I’m currently working on the CARMS Project (Cognitive AppRoaches to CoMbatting Suicidatilty) which explores the efficacy of a new psychological therapy for people who experience or have experienced psychosis and suicidal thoughts or feelings. The therapy aims to reduce suicidal thoughts and behaviours.
I work on multiple qualitative projects looking at the implementation of this new therapy, feedback on the therapy and the mechanisms associated with suicide. Alongside this I am also looking at people’s experiences of taking part in suicide related research.
- Efficacy of current mental health services in relation to suicide
- People’s experiences of taking part in suicide related research
- The language used both inside and outside of healthcare to talk about suicide.
- The development and use of qualitative methods in suicide research
Can help with: Most things qualitative, reminders to be kind to yourself, plant-related advice.
What’s essential to your well-being? A big sleep, good food, kind people, skincare! I’m also a florist so often find myself stood amongst big piles of flowers at the weekend – which helps.
