Timothy Clarke


CLAHRC Fellow 2017


Tim has worked clinically in the field of Early Intervention and Youth Mental Health since 2007 in Norfolk, UK. He has worked on various youth mental health research projects and was trial manager for the first phase of the NIHR funded PRODIGY (Prevention of long term social disability in young people with emerging psychological difficulties) trial. As a Research Clinical Psychologist, Tim is local Co-Investigator for the PRODIGY trial and research development lead for Child, Family and Young People Services at the Norfolk and Suffolk Foundation Trust (NSFT). He has an interest in transforming youth mental health services in line with relevant established research, policy guidance and through development of novel research. His CLAHRC project focusses on understanding the complexities of youth mental health systems through applying engineering design principles. It is hoped that this work will allow the Youth mental health system to improve patient flow and safety for young people.
