Overview


My research is broadly aimed at identifying factors that improve help seeking for mental health problems particularly in young people and males. The second area involves research into psycho-social treatments for severe mental disorders and/or alcohol and other drug problems. A major focus has been on the assessment and implementation of recovery-oriented mental health care. I am interested in the role that values, acceptance and therapeutic homework (action plans) play in treatment. This work has extended to applications in physical illnesses and health settings (e.g., palliative care).
