Mental health, cross-culture, self-compassion, intrinsic motivation, ikigai, shinrin-yoku
At my previous university, my role was to lead UG/PG taught courses online, therefore I have several publications regarding online pedagogy on top of my mental health research.
How narratives of people with lived experience of mental health difficulties, delivered online, can help people with mental health difficulties.
How peer support work can help improve mental health cross-culturally.
Mental health, self-compassion, cross-culture, workplace mental health including healthcare workers, mental health shame, motivation, shinrin-yoku (forest bathing), ikigai (meaning in life)
Those ongoing projects will be expanded and deepened e.g., up-scale, more global recruitment and comparisons
