After qualifying as a social worker in 1995 I worked for 12 years in mental health services, in the Northern Health and Social Care Trust, as a Community Mental Health Team social worker, out of hours Approved Social Worker, project manager and team leader in assertive outreach and rehabilitation. My main research interests are in the area of mental health, specifically: the effectiveness of mental health services; the social determinants of mental health; human rights and mental health/mental capacity legislation; and the associations between adverse childhood experiences and mental health. I'm a Fellow in the Centre for Evidence and Social Innovation; the Queen's coordinator for the Approved Social Work Programme which is a partnership with the Health and Social Care Trusts; and one of the social work representatives on the Department of Health's Reference Group for the Mental Capacity Act Northern Ireland 2016.
