Christian Dalton-Locke

About me: After graduating from Goldsmiths, University of London, with a BSc in Psychology, I worked as a graduate mental health worker and assistant practitioner for Camden and Islington NHS Foundation Trust. I then joined University College London (UCL) as a research assistant on the QuEST study, a national NIHR funded project investigating the quality and effectiveness of mental health supported accommodation. I am now studying for the Mental Health Sciences Research MSc, also at UCL, as part of my 1+3 studentship with UBEL ESRC.

My research: My research continues to investigate specialist mental health supported accommodation, and address some of the questions raised by the QuEST study.

The difference my research makes:  An estimated 60,000 people in England use specialist mental health supported accommodation, and it forms an essential component of the care pathway for complex, longer term mental health problems. I aim with my research to investigate the outcomes of individuals using these services, and what predicts these outcomes.

Supervisors: Professor Helen Killaspy and Dr Louise Marston.
