Often it's been pioneering work that had never been done before.

Here are case studies of the changes that have inspired me.

Online CBT and Self Help for Depression and Anxiety

How do we help people who do not engage with mental health services because of barriers like cost, geographic distance or even shame? And what about people who want to do things themselves and choose not to engage? 

I was Principal Investigator on this research into over 600 people's experiences doing online CBT and self help and over 40 staff's perspectives on referring and delivering this service.

DBT - Making The Difference

For me DBT (Dialectical Behavioural Therapy) takes all the best bits of the better-known CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) and adds useful tools from Eastern traditions like acceptance and mindfulness. I felt privileged to be able to help the country's only residential DBT service with strategic and operational planing to improve accessibility and continue to deliver services.

Lived Experience Advisor Roles in Health

One of the most encouraging signs of change has been the increase of lived experience roles within health. But we're still figuring out how they can best contribute to a better health system and support the individuals employed and the workforce as a whole. 

I led this project to help inpatient and outpatient services at a hospital redesign their advisory roles in consultation with community organisations.
