Posted on 26 June 2018

Research Fellow and Lecturer, Dr Nicola Moran, has contributed to a podcast showcasing the bespoke mental health training developed for North Yorkshire Police.

‘The Story of Things’ is a podcast series hosted by the University of York. It explores a variety of research that has changed the way we think or the way in which society operates. Experts in their field discuss how we understand the world around us and what researchers and communities are doing to improve our environment, culture, health and wellbeing.

In ‘The Story of Mental Health’ Dr Moran and Inspector Bill Scott, Mental Health Lead and Suicide Prevention Officer for North Yorkshire Police, discuss some of the issues around policing and mental health before describing the training package, the research/evaluation undertaken by the University and the subsequent roll-out of the training across the Force.
