I am a Research Fellow currently working in a project team to identify the impact of colleague suicide on NHS staff, and their needs, to inform postvention guidance. I employ qualitative methods to explore experience, perception and meaning.
My previous research explored the impact of student suicide on staff in UK universities. Prior to my research career I worked in child protection and young people's mental health settings in the third and public sector. My research interests are informed by my practice experience. I am curious to learn more about the impact of adverse events in the workplace on individual practitioners, teams and workplace cultures.
