BiographyI investigate the causes of depression and the best way of treating depression. It is important to understand the basis of psychiatric disorders to inform prevention, reduce stigma and to develop new treatments. My research plans to investigate the nature of psychological vulnerability (or resilience) to environmental stressors. I am also concerned about the large increase in antidepressant prescription over the past 20 years. My research is investigating better methods of deciding who benefits from antidepressants and whether taking long term antidepressants to prevent relapse is effective.
