Global Mental Health: South Asia Self Harm Initiative

Tuesday 16 July 2019, 1.00PM to 2pm

Speaker(s): Professor Catherine Robinson

Professor Catherine Robinson leads a UKRI GCRF funded programme of research on self harm. The South Asia Self Harm research capacity building Initiative (SASHI) is a collaboration between Bangor, Oxford and Manchester Universities and organisations in South Asia.

The first part of SASHI is built around the development of self harm surveillance systems in secondary and community settings. Catherine will talk about the work in India that led to the development of SASHI, her experiences of moving from advisor to collaborator and the challenges and rewards of doing research in low and middle income countries.

We will have the opportunity to talk about the potential for collaboration and to draw together a number of interests around global mental health and social care

Our speaker, Professor Catherine Robinson, has recently moved from Bangor University to the University of Manchester. She is the Director of the Personal Social Services Research Unit at Manchester and Associate Director of the NIHR School for Social Care Research.
