I have worked in service and organisational development since 2000 undertaking a wide range of development, evaluation and research initiatives across England and Wales in the fields of mental health, alcohol misuse, substance misuse and learning disabilities. I have completed work for a variety of organisations including Primary Care Trusts, Strategic Health Authorities, National Institute for Mental Health in England, the National Patients Safety Agency, specialist mental health providers, Local Authority Social Services Departments and a number of voluntary and user organisations.
I also have 10 years clinical experience working in the NHS as a nurse and eight years experience of working in the voluntary sector with the national charity Turning Point. I was awarded my PhD from Lancaster University in 2000 and have published considerably on mental health policy, research methods and service and practice development. I edited Managing Crisis and Risk for Mental Health Nursing (1999) and co-edited Good Practice in Adult Mental Health (2004) and New Approaches to Suicide Prevention (2004).
