BiographyKarina is a Professor of Mental health and Director of Research, School of Nursing, Midwifery and Social Work at the University of Manchester. Our research has addressed common, distressing and costly mental health problems such as depression and anxiety and the extent to which low intensity psychological interventions (CBT based guided self-help) can be employed effectively. She has developed self-help materials for depression, anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), and depression associated with coronary heart disease, diabetes, chronic widespread pain and COPD and undertook RCTs that demonstrated their benefit. A further strand of work has focussed on improving user and carer involvement in care planning in secondary care mental health services
