My research work involves addressing feelings of suicidality in vulnerable groups. Those groups include people suffering from experiences of psychosis, PTSD [trauma], unipolar depression, and bipolar disorder. All of these groups of people are marginalised. In addition, my work involves research into suicide in prisoners. Again, prisoners are a highly vulnerable, marginalised, group.
A key activity for me is public engagement. As part of that I took part (17th March 2015) in a debate about whether "suicide can be rational". See: www.sickfestival.com. Follow on Twitter @SICKFestival and Facebook: SICKFestival. My work woth the SiCK festival is ongoing.
I collaborate with key mental health charities (e.g., Manchester Mind, YASP, Self Help, Samaritans), and Public Health Departments. I am a member of a Suicide Prevention Task and Finish Group which aims to integrate suicide prevention initiatives in Greater Manchester across mental health charities, NHS trusts, public health departments, transport networks, and local councillors.
