Kate Morgan

Research Assistant, Faculty of Medicine & Health Sciences



I recently joined the NEON team in September, 2017. For the past 5 years I have worked within research at the University of Leeds where I also conducted my Phd on the silence and invisibility of mental health within the workplace. I now work as a research assistant for NEON, researching how experiencing online stories of personal recovery ('recovery narratives') can improve the quality of life for people with mental health conditions, specifially psychosis.

My main research interests are mental health recovery and the importance, power and impact of voice on the individual, others and on society as a whole. This includes narratives ("stories") and lived experience, silence, voice, disclosure, wellbeing and the importance of researching as a self-identified peer.

Expertise Summary

My expertise lie within qualitative research and have taken an academic interest in how the researcher's own lived experience can be used as a methodological tool within the research process. I gained research skills in relation to researching vulnerable participants and gathering, analysing and presenting sensitive data. Mental health has always been the primary focus on my research and therefore I specialise in studies wherein mental health is at the forefront.
