Being an open science journal, JCPP Advances aims to proactively experiment with and explore new approaches to publication and research. We have achieved so much in our first year, and this one-year anniversary event will featured a series of five fantastic 10-minute lectures from leading researchers, academics, and practitioners on a number of topics in the field of child and adolescent mental health, and will also include a short presentation from Wiley, ACAMH’s publishing partner, highlighting JCPP Advances’ success so far.

She has been working for two decades on how to improve mental health services for vulnerable and hard to reach populations which has led to an interest in integrated care and school-based mental health services. She has worked with local CAMHS services to change how they interface with education. She also conducts the OxWell Student Survey which in 2021 had responses from over 30,000 students, guiding our understanding of what school-aged students say they want and need.
