UCL CORE Laura-Louise Arundell

PhD Candidate, and Research Assistant at the Centre for Outcomes Research and Effectiveness

My research interests are in understanding and improving mental health service access, experience and outcomes for marginalised communities, including people from diverse backgrounds. I am currently undertaking a part-time PhD on improving mental health outcomes for ethnic minority women, supervised by Prof Steve Pilling and Dr Rob Saunders. Most of my day-to-day work comprises research for the National Collaborating Centre for Mental Health (NCCMH) – a collaboration between CORE and the Royal College of Psychiatrists. I have led the research and development of a number of care pathways commissioned by NHS England and other research work at the NCCMH including the Advancing Mental Health Equality Resource, which involved working closely and collaboratively with people from marginalised communities (e.g. different BAME groups, the LGBTQ+ community and people with disabilities). I have previous experience as an assistant psychologist and research assistant in both NHS and private health care settings and hold an MSci in Psychology and Psychological Practice from the University of Birmingham.
