Projects per year
Judi Kidger is a senior lecturer in Public Health. She completed her PhD in teenage pregnancy and sex education, at the University of Bristol. Her research since then has focused on young people’s mental health and self-harm behaviour and school based mental health interventions. Judi recently led a school-based cluster randomised controlled trial (the WISE study), evaluating an intervention to improve secondary school teachers' mental health and their skills in supporting students. She is primarily funded by the NIHR's School for Public Health Research. Within the School Judi is co-lead of the Public Mental Health Programme, and she is leading work packages examining ways in which school organisational structures, policies and processes can impact mental health positively or negatively. She is also leading two public health practice evaluations, one to evaluate the Mental Health Foundation’s Peer Education Project and the other working in partnership with South Gloucestershire public health team to evaluate the added benefit of linking a talking therapies service with wider community support.
