University of East Anglia

Campbell Robertson is a postgraduate researcher at the University of East Anglia (UEA). Before commencing this position, Campbell pursued an undergraduate degree in Biomedical Science and master’s degree in Public Health in Edinburgh before moving to Norwich to start his PhD. Whilst studying for his master’s degree, the COVID-19 pandemic was causing mass disruption within the UK and internationally. One aspect of the pandemic that Campbell wanted to focus on was the pandemics impact on mental health, an area that he previously had little experience with. His master’s dissertation was a systematic review investigating the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on mental well-being within the UK. He is now working on his first study at UEA, which will quantify mental health indicators during the first 24 months of the COVID-19 pandemic within England across different healthcare settings. This study will be in collaboration with the UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) and the Oxford-Royal College of General Practitioners Research and Surveillance Centre (RCGP RSC). This study aims to provide a complete timeline of mental health indicators during the pandemic and identify individuals most at risk of presenting mental health indicators by age and sex. It will also highlight the importance of monitoring mental health in real-time and across different healthcare settings.
