Dawn Edge is a Senior Lecturer/Associate Professor in the Centre for New Treatments & Understanding in Mental Health (CeNTrUM) at The University of Manchester.

Her research interests focus on: Intersections between determinants of health and illness such as ethnicity, gender, socioeconomic status and mental health
  • Interrelationships between mental and physical health and wellbeing
  • Factors that influence individuals' abilities to access appropriate support, care and treatment
  • Individual- and community-level strategies for building resilience and managing psychological distress
