Emmeline is a Mexican psychiatrist and psychotherapist, who in 2013 moved to London to study an MSc in War & Psychiatry and a PhD in Health Service and Population Research, both at King's College London. Her research was focused on stigma and mental health and included developing, implementing and evaluating an anti-stigma intervention for Mexican psychiatric trainees. During her time in the UK, Emmeline has worked as volunteer counsellor for LAWRS (Latin American Women´s Rights Services) and has tutored MSc students at King´s College London and young students at different schools in London. Currently, Emmeline works as a specialty doctor in a crisis and resolution team at Camden & Islington NHS Foundation Trust, and serves as a mental health consultant for the Mexican Embassy in the UK. She is affiliated to the Royal College of Psychiatrists, is a certified psychiatrist by the Mexican College of Psychiatrists, and a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy. She loves food, teaching and watching films; she dislikes avocado (despite being Mexican), taking the bins out and the cold weather.
Emmeline Lagunes Cordoba and Magdalena Skowronska review a recent Swiss RCT, which found that crisis resolution teams led to fewer hospital days per patient, but did not prevent hospital admission entirely.
