London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine (LSHTM) - UK
The London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine is a world-leading centre for research and postgraduate education in public and global health. We currently have more than 1,000 Master’s and research degree students based in London and 3,000 studying by distance learning. Our staff, students and alumni work in 180 countries worldwide. The School has many world-leading centres, research groups and consortia, specialising in areas as diverse as malaria, tuberculosis, non-communicable diseases, global mental health, mathematical modelling, evaluation of public health interventions, and maternal, reproductive, adolescent and child health.
The Centre for Global Mental Health (CGMH) is a collaboration between the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine (LSHTM) and King’s Health Partners Academic Health Science Centre, including the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience (IoPPN), SLAM and our KCL and NHS Trust partners. It aims to build on the existing collaborations and complementary strengths of these two institutions to foster research and training in policy, prevention, treatment and care. Its mission is to close the treatment gap for people living with mental, neurological and substance use disorders in low resource settings.
Position: Co-Principal Investigator for LSHTM
Arlinda is a mental health researcher with background in psychology and special interest in the development, evaluation and implementation of digital interventions for mental health. Arlinda's research work, in the last 7 years, has focused on digital interventions for mental health. She is also the UK-Principal Investigator of MindUp (https://www.mindupproject.eu), a similar project, funded by the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 programme. Arlinda is leading the research work on LMIC's in South Eastern Europe i.e. Albania and Kosova, where there is a dearth of evidence base, funding and research activity.
Arlinda has previously held both clinical and research posts with different NHS trusts and academic institutions in the UK. Her other research interests lie in the development and evaluation of culturally appropriate interventions in low-resourced and humanitarian settings, with a focus on countries of South Eastern Europe.
Position: Scientific Steering Group
Carl May is Professor of Medical Sociology in the Faculty of Public Health and Policy at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. His research includes studies of professional-patient interaction, chronic disease management in primary care, the development and implementation of innovative healthcare technologies such as telemedicine, and the production and politics of evidence about effective clinical practice. Over the past decade, Carl has focused his empirical and theoretical work on developing a richer understanding of the implementation of complex interventions in health care and of the dynamic processes that underpin technological innovation. Central to this has been the development of Normalization Process Theory (NPT), with Tracy Finch, which provides conceptual tools to analyse the processes through which innovations in healthcare are implemented, embedded and integrated into everyday life and work, and Burden of Treatment Theory that extends the insights of NPT to help us understand how clinical and service innovations are experienced by patients and their families."
