Prof Kathy Greenwood is currently Clinical Research Fellow and Consultant Clinical psychologist at the R&D Department of Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust and Professor of Psychology at the University of Sussex, School of Psychology. She is trust lead for Psychosis Research, Vice-Chair of the Psychosis Clinical Academic Group in Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust, a member of the Digital Board and director of the Sussex Psychosis Research interest Group (SPRiG). Kathy’s clinical work specialises in psychological therapies for psychosis across early intervention, secondary and national specialist services. She also has specific expertise in research, teaching, training and supervision. Kathy has secured over £7 million in grant income for mental health research and has over 80 publications. Her research interests include (i) facilitators of youth engagement in mental health and help seeking, including work around early intervention to prevent stigma development in young children, and (ii) the role of cognition, metacognition, and self-beliefs on functional outcomes (including physical health) and (iii) implementation of therapeutic mental health services to enhance recovery and social inclusion outcomes in psychosis. Current grants include a large national multi-site randomised trial to test a motivational engagement intervention in Early Intervention in Psychosis services, a reasoning intervention in psychosis services, and a cognitive behavioural intervention for social disability in young people, as well as the development of informed choice decision aids to promote uptake and implementation of CBT for psychosis and mental health help-seeking in young people. She has written manuals to support the delivery of psychological interventions for physical health in psychosis and has a particular focus on the implementation of psychological therapies and research findings into routine clinical practice.
