Rebecca is a Research Assistant in the Division of Psychology and Mental Health at the University of Manchester. Her academic interests come from a multidisciplinary background, including a Bachelor’s and a Master’s degree in Criminal Justice, and a PhD in Public Health, which she is currently preparing for submission. Her PhD research explores how drug use and the associated lifestyles and practices feature as part of a young adult’s identity, and her current work project, ‘PROSPECT’ consists of four studies designed to help us to improve the quality of suicide prevention treatment for patients in prison. In her spare time she likes to play netball, spend time with friends and family, discover new bands and go to gigs, and do a spot of gardening.
