Dr Emily Wallman

Research Assistant - Family Centred Care, MCRI

Emily is a psychology and psychiatry researcher. Her research interests include investigating mental health treatment preferences and treatment acceptability, as well as understanding the impact that caregivers’ own knowledge and experiences have on their child’s care. Emily completed her PhD in Psychiatry at Monash University in 2022. Her doctoral research focussed on exploring the lived experience of young people receiving treatment for a mental health concern, as well as examining the preferences and subjective experiences of caregivers of adolescents. Outside of her role at MCRI, Emily also teaches Honours-level psychology.

Emily is passionate about youth and family mental health and wellbeing. She hopes that the Campus Strategy will lead to more holistic, integrated, and empowering care for families throughout the Campus.
