  • Bio

Dr Margaret McLafferty is a Research Fellow in mental health at Ulster University, Northern Ireland. Margaret’s PhD examined the impact of childhood adversities on future psychopathology and suicidal behaviour, focusing on factors which promote psychological wellbeing and the development of adaptive emotion regulation and coping strategies. She helped co-ordinate a large-scale longitudinal study to identify risk and protective factors for suicidal behaviour, mental health and wellbeing, among university students. The Student Psychological Intervention Trial (SPIT) was conducted as part of the World Mental Health International College Student Initiative. The study included a randomised control trial to test the effectiveness of an online CBT based guided intervention for students with mild to moderate levels of depression and/or anxiety. Margaret is currently working on the Irish Student Wellbeing and ADHD Project (I-SWAP).
