A five month project with the Mental Health Foundation to review Psychological Stress and Trauma in the NHS workforce, looking at the prevalence, existing frameworks, interventions and best practice to improve the health and wellbeing of NHS staff. This project was commissioned by the National Workforce Skills Development Unit at the Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust.

An evaluation of a 2-year NHS Veterans Mental Health TIL Service, Prison In-Reach project across four London prisons to identify and work with Armed Forces veteran offenders in custody, through the prison gates and into the community to help improve their access to healthcare and welfare services and to reduce re-offending behaviour across London.

Criminal Justice Mental Health Service. A 2-year evaluation of a police liaison mental health service and a prevalence study of mental health problems and unmet needs in detained individuals in Lambeth custody suites. It also seeks to understand the wider needs and outcomes of this group.

We have recently provided bid writing support for several research groups seeking funding from bodies, such as Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC), the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) and smaller organisations.
