Molly McCarthy

School of Psychology

I joined Liverpool John Moores University, School of Psychology as a PhD student in January 2021 after graduating from The University of Manchester in 2020 with a first-class BSc (Hons) in Psychology and MSc in Forensic Psychology and Mental. My current PhD research involves collaborative work with Cheshire Wirral Partnership and Mersey Care NHS Trust to examine the configuration and utilisation of clinical pathways by patients who attend A&E in suicidal crisis. My main research interests are suicide and self-harm, mental health and partner violence.

I have experience working on a large-scale randomised control trial at the University of Liverpool (PROMDEP study) which assessed a patient reported outcome measure for individuals with depression in primary care. This project worked collaboratively with individuals across Liverpool, University of Southampton and University of Central London. Furthermore, I have research experience working with high, medium and low-risk perpetrators of domestic violence to evaluate a healthy relationships programme (HELP) in both a prison and probation setting.
