Ms Lauren Jerome

Research Assistant, TACK



I completed my BSc (Hons) in Psychology at the University of Bath in 2016. I have worked as a Research Assistant at the University of Manchester on projects looking at resilience to depression and exercise as an early intervention in first episode psychosis. I then worked at the Clinical Trials Unit at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine on large national randomised controlled trials, primarily looking at using text messages to promote safer sexual health in young adults. I now work at the Unit for Social and Community Psychiatry as a Research Assistant on the TACK project, looking at using DIALOG+ for individuals with chronic depression and low mood.


Research Interests:

Randomised controlled trials, mental health research, solution-focused therapy, mixed-methods research, non-pharmacological interventions
