I have a particular interest in the way in which mental health laws and mental capacity laws are used within practice with vulnerable adults with mental health diagnoses. My research is centred around trying to establish how supported-decision making tools and resources such as Independent Mental Health Advocates, advance decision documents and accessible/easy-read materials, can be used more readily by social work practitioners.
Throughout the last two years, I have worked as a qualified social worker within both children and adults' settings. During the last year I have worked exclusively with vulnerable adults with severe and enduring mental health probems.
Prior to gaining my social work qualification I worked with vulnerable people - mainly those with mental health issues - in a variety of a different roles including as a youth worker and a NEET prevention worker.
I currently work within the emergency department of a hospital supporting and advocating for patients with mental health issues in order to aid safe discharge back into the community.
I am a SWE registered social worker.
