Ms Katie Atmore

Research Assistant & Distance Learning Tutor

I am a Global Mental Health Distance Learning Tutor for the Distance Learning MSc in Global Health Policy Programme at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine as well as the Scientific Coordinator for the INSPIRE Project: Innovative Approaches to Adolescent Perinatal Wellbeing at the Centre for Global Mental Health, Health Service and Population Research Department, Institute of Psychology, Psychiatry and Neuroscience, King’s College London.

I am a mental health researcher with MScs in both Global Mental Health and Neuroscience. Following my studies, I have been developing my skills and knowledge of qualitative and quantitative approaches to mental health challenges and social inequalities through data collection, interviewing, analysis, peer-reviewed publication and policy report writing. I have worked in South Africa, Kenya, The Gambia, Mozambique and the UK with health organisations, NGOs and local stakeholders to understand mental health needs and existing service provision and to create innovative solutions to treatment gaps. My career ambitions are to continue contributing to projects addressing mental health through destigmatising initiatives and effective service planning with a particular interest in adolescent mental health, women’s mental health, LGBT+ mental health and participatory research.
