Research overview

The aim of my research is to understand key factors underpinning mental health and wellbeing, and how best to support people who are experiencing mental distress. I am interested in mental health within a broad social context, and support offered online, by charity groups, through peer to peer interaction, and in clinical settings. I am keen to understand the positive and negative impacts of these forms of support, and the underlying mechanisms of how they work. To do this, I use a range of methodologies, drawing on both quantiative and qualitative approaches, and am increasingly intersted in working within a realist framework. 

Currently, I am particularly interested in supervising PhDs in the following areas

1. Digital mental health

2. Social networks and their role in supporting mental health and wellbeing

3. Peer support
