Cambridge Public Health


I am a PhD student in the Department of Psychiatry looking at how to best identify mental health difficulties, risk for mental health difficulties, and adverse childhood experiences in primary school children. I am particularly interested in the role of schools in delivering the public mental health response to the increasing prevalence of mental health difficulties in children and young people.
