Ellen is an Early Career Researcher. Her research has included developing and testing a new needs assessment tool for people recovering from a first episode of mental illness: the Needs in Recovery Assessment (NiRA). The NiRA has been developed in consultation with service users and mental health clinicians and is a valid and reliable tool for identifying the needs of this population. The tool provides a new approach to assessment in mental health and will be tested in clinical settings in the near future.

Ellen's research interests also include the use of Simulated Patients in Research.
