In this podcast, we talk to our CAMH Editor in Chief, Honorary Professor Dr. Bernadka Dubicka.
Bernadka discusses her achievements at the Child and Adolescent Faculty at the Royal College of Psychiatrists, from which she has recently departed, together with the recent Honorary Professor role from the University of Manchester.
Bernadka explains what can be done to translate research into practice, and what mental health professionals can do to influence policy. She details the key points of evidence she put across to the Health and Social Care Select Committee on Children and Young People's Mental Health, including integrated care as being essential. She also elaborates on describing the increasing demand for children and young people's mental health during the Covid pandemic as “a crisis on a pre-existing crisis”.
