Summary

 

Summary

Dr Matthew Hodes is an Honorary Senior Lecturer in Child & Adolescent Psychiatry, and also works as a Consultant Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist in the NHS with Central and North West London NHS Foundation Trust.

 Research

Matthew carries out research into the mental health of young people in two main areas. Firstly, he investigates sociocultural influences on child and adolescent mental health. He has studied risk and protective factors for psychopathology, and service use. A major focus has been the mental health of young refugees and asylum seekers. Secondly, he investigates the interface between physical and mental health. Recent studies address  maternal and child anxiety associated with childhood food allergy. Another area of interest is evidence  based practice, and he  has been active in synthesising and disseminating research findings, especially in the field of child and adolescent depression.

He has been active in higher specialist training in child & adolescent psychiatry, at national level and more recently across London, and continues to be involved with training locally in Central and North West London NHS Foundation Trust and the St Mary’s Higher Training Scheme (North West London).
