Alicia Stringfellow

Research student

I began my career in 1997 working as a Staff Nurse and later as a Team Leader at Broadmoor Hospital Authority working in male high dependency and female intensive care settings. In 2001 I returned to South Wales, joining Cardiff and Vale NHS Trust as a Team Manager for a community rehabilitation team developing and delivering intensive community based care to those who experience psychosis. After obtaining an MSc in Nursing in 2010 I was successful in gaining an Associate Lecturer position at Cardiff University contributing to the delivery of the undergraduate BN Programme. In conjunction with the Associate Lecturer role, I was the project lead within Cardiff and Vale University Health Board for the implementation of family intervention for psychosis within adult mental health services. In 2015 I became a full-time Lecturer in Mental Health Nursing in the School of Healthcare Sciences with a specific interest in schizophrenia and psychosis and the family experience of this.

Research interests

My research interests are around exploring the experience of mothers with adult sons or daughters with schizophrenia.
