Dr Ruth Wells

Lead Principal Investigator

Ruth Wells is a Research Fellow in the Trauma and Mental Health Unit, in Psychiatry and Mental Health at the University of New South Wales, Sydney, Australia. Their research focuses on improving MHPSS service provision in humanitarian settings globally and bringing to light how conflict and social exclusion can impact on the well-being of displaced communities. They bring a feminist and decolonizing lens to critically evaluate mental health services towards being more person-centred, equitable and inclusive. They have a strong commitment to participatory research practices and are humbled to have the opportunity to work together with Syrian Turkish, Bangladeshi colleagues, as well as people from refugee backgrounds living in Australia.
