My work focuses on the effectiveness of interventions and services for children with poor mental health, such as the Incredible Years Classroom Management Course that we are testing in the STARS trial. Both mental health and services are interpreted broadly in this statement to include all levels of psychopathology and all services dealing with children. Every contact with a professional represents an opportunity to recognise distress or dysfunction and to intervene to improve a child’s developmental trajectory. For example, if the STARS trial demonstrates positive influences on teacher and child mental health and well-being, this work will have a major impact as training one teacher potentially benefits every child subsequently taught by that teacher, as well as teaching staff themselves. I am a child and adolescent psychiatrist but the themes covered by my work are inherently translational and multi-disciplinary, and involve strong links with education, psychology, paediatrics, epidemiology, trial specialists, statisticians and health economics both within and external to the University of Exeter.
