Elizabeth Baines

Mental Health Lecturer
School of Nursing

Liz teaches within the Mental Health School of Nursing. She has only just joined UCLan and is excited by this challenge and the Comensus Project. She has a wealth of Clinical Expertise from the NHS and specialises in Psychosocial Management of Psychosis and Risk Management.

As I am only two weeks in post I am not currently involved in Research. I am continuing to combine this post with two days Clinical Practice in a Home Treatment Team. I have many personal and Professional perspectives to bring to my teaching role in the area of Serious Mental Illness and in particular Voice Hearing.

Liz has spoken at various Conferences concerning Service Users and has delivered workshops for Befrienders at Mind particularly in Engagement with People experiencing Psychosis. I have worked for the NHS for many years and have developed Service User initiatives around the theme of hope and introducing Service Users to training workshops for staff. I have delivered Workshops for Mental Health Practitioners to assist their interventions for people who hear voices. I founded and ran Lancaster Hearing Voices Group. I have recently taken up post with UCLan and am excited by the opportunity to shape the Student Nurses of the future. I am also delighted to be around innovations in Mental Health both in the UK and abroad and look forward to sharing and learning from my colleagues.
