Kamelia Harris

Institution: Greater Manchester Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust, Manchester, England.

Position: Trial Manager/Project Coordinator.

Current research: My research interests relate to understanding the development and treatment of psychosis and related mental health problems, as well as suicidal experiences. My PhD investigated the relationships between psychological resilience and suicidal thoughts and behaviours in people experiencing non-affective psychosis.

Research interests:

  • Conceptualisations of psychological resilience in the context of mental health and suicidal experiences.
  • Protective factors and psychological resilience.
  • Public perceptions of self-harm and suicide.
