Personal profile

Research Statement

I contribute to research within the Maternal and Child Health research theme and am a fellow in the Centre for Evidence and Soical Innovation (CESI). Within CESI i contribute to two research programmes, (i ) what works for families, and (ii) mental health and well being.  My research interests are parental mental illness, early interventions for families when parents have mental illness and workforce capacity in relation to family focused practice. As part of the Prato Collaborative I contribute to international and multidisciplinary research (across nursing, psychiatry, psychology, social worker and sociology) to examine and develop workforce initiatives in the field of parental psychopathology. I currnetily contribute to four international projects as part of this group. A recent project In Oslo and Akershus University College in Norway entailed developing digital case studies from the findings of my Irish wide study of psychiatric nurses' family focused practice. The digital case studies have been incorporated within a Masters level module entitled "The Family in Mental Health Services" which will prepare health and social care professionals to support parents who have mental illness, their children and families in Norwegian mental health services. I also work closely with the Health and Social Care Board (HSCB) in my contribution to the Northern Irish Think Family Initiative and am PI for a study examining health and social care professionals' family focused practice across Northern Ireland.
