Dr Bethan Davies - Research Fellow: Children & Young Person’s Theme
Bethan’s PhD focused on the mental health of university students, and in particular in how online resources may help improve their mental health literacy and self-management of mental health issues. She continues to have a great interest in student mental health and in how digital technologies may help in the recognition, management and treatment of mental health issues in this population. Bethan’s other interests include how people help others experiencing a mental health issue (also known as ‘mental health first aid’) and psychological factors influencing this, the evaluation of digital interventions (e.g. internet interventions) for physical and mental health issues, and children and young people’s experiences and perceptions of receiving health services and treatments. Bethan has experience of using online methodologies to recruit participants and administer outcome measures.
