Engaging young people in early psychosis mental health services

Project Details

No effective mental health service, support or treatment can be provided without engagement in a relationship.

PhD candidate Ms Rachel Tindall is conducting a qualitative longitudinal study of the experience of engagement in early psychosis services, for young people, carers and case managers. She is researching the issue and experience of engagement in depth, exploring all significant points of view and the ways in which experiences of engagement change over time.

Ms Tindall PhD builds on her earlier work exploring the experiences of young people, published as Factors influencing engagement with case managers: Perspectives of young people with a diagnosis of first episode psychosis in the International Journal of Mental Health Nursing (2015) 24, 295-303

Ms Tindall is supervised by CPN Director Assoc. Prof Bridget Hamilton and researchers at Orygen Youth Health.
