PhD candidate in Psychiatry, Karolinska Institutet

As a licensed clinical psychologist working in forensic psychiatric care at one of Sweden's largest forensic psychiatric facilities, I possess extensive hands-on experience in managing and treating individuals with severe mental illness. Currently pursuing my doctoral studies at Karolinska Institutet in clinical neuroscience, I am deeply invested in the field of adolescent mental health, particularly focusing on reducing suicide rates and enhancing recognition and access to evidence-based treatments for youth with severe mental illness. My research background primarily lies in psychiatric epidemiology and clinical trials, where I have contributed to advancing knowledge in adult psychiatric disorders. However, my recent focus has shifted towards understanding the importance of direct clinical approaches in addressing the mental health needs of adolescents. Drawing from my clinical expertise and research insights, I bring a unique perspective to the field, challenging notions of single therapy as the sole solution for severe mental illness. Recognizing the crucial role of medical treatment as a foundation for successful psychotherapeutic interventions in severely affected psychiatric patients, I aim to bridge the gap between various perspectives and contribute to the holistic and comprehensive care of individuals struggling with mental health challenges.
