Dr Lisa Marzano is an Associate Professor in Psychology, specialising in mental health and suicide research. Formerly a Research Fellow at the Oxford University Centre for Suicide Research, she re-joined Middlesex University in 2012, having previously studied at the University.
Lisa currently leads the INSIGHT collaboration with colleagues in the School of Science and Technology, the Institute of Psychology, Psychiatry and Neuroscience, and the University of Bristol (http://insight.mdx.ac.uk/), which applies technological innovations to mental health research and clinical practice; the QUEST study (http://www.thequeststudy.org/), a project commissioned by Samaritans to inform new approaches to suicide prevention; and research with colleagues at the Glasgow University Suicidal Behaviour Research Lab investigating public attitudes towards self-injury. Having previously developed training in suicide prevention for front-line police officers, she is also conducting a wider study of mental health training for emergency services with colleagues in the Department of Psychology, and is the author of a Continuing Professional Development module on suicides in prison for the Royal College of Psychiatrists (with Professor Seena Fazel of Oxford University). Further areas of interest include the psychological effects of imprisonment and prison work; the quality and impact of media reports of suicidal behaviour; non suicidal self-injuryamongst men; policing and mental health; technological innovations in forensic practice and research."
Lisa is currently supervising five doctoral students on projects ranging from mother-infant separation in custody to prison-based sex offender treatment programmes, and clinical interventions for self-harm and anxiety.
