Career details

I coordinate the Mental Health in Higher Education project. I have a first degree in English and a background in mental health social work. I have taught on pre- and post-qualifying social work programmes at the University of Nottingham, Lancaster University and the University of Cumbria.

I am currently a doctoral student in the department of Educational Research at Lancaster University. I work with Researching Equity, Access and Participation and am an associate member of the Centre for Social Justice and Wellbeing in Education.

I co-ordinate the Developers of User and Carer Involvement in Education network and and co-facilitate Critical and Creative Approaches to Mental Health Practice, which meets monthly in Lancaster. I am a member of the editorial collective of Asylum: the magazine for democratic psychiatry.
