Associate Professor Praveetha Patalay
University College London, UK 

Praveetha_Patalay-360pxPraveetha Patalay is an Associate Professor at UCL. Her research focuses on mental health through the life course, health inequalities and the intersection between physical and mental health. She is interested in how we can achieve better health and wellbeing through our lives and the universal interventions and structural changes that might be needed to support this. She has received much recognition for her research to date, including being named on Forbes' 30 under 30 list for science and healthcare a few years ago and most recently the ESRC Impact Prize for the impact of her mental health research on public policy.


Young people's mental health is of growing concern with evidence from many countries highlighting increasing difficulties in current generations of adolescents. Associate Professor Praveetha Patalay will present recent findings examining the correlates and consequences of adolescent mental health across generations and across countries. The importance of considering mental health findings in the social-cultural contexts and environments in which they are generated and the implications of the time- and place-sensitive findings for public policy and intervention will be discussed.
