Understanding and modifying risk of suicide
Research team leader: Professor Andrew Page
I am a professor of psychology at The University of Western Australia. I worked as a clinical psychologist in the Clinical Unit for Anxiety and Depression (CRUfAD) and was co-director of the Robin Winkler Clinic, where I was instrumental in developing the clinic’s individual and group treatment programs as a model of science-informed practice.
