About Tamsin Ford

I lead a group of researchers whose work focuses on the effectiveness of services and interventions to support mental health and well-being of children and young people, with a particular interest in the interface between health services and education.

In addition, I am the lead for the medical school for academic careers among medical students and junior doctors and also an honorary consultant child and adolescent psychiatrist at Devon Partnership Trust and a visiting senior lecturer at the Institute of Psychiatry. I am Editor in Chief of Child and Adolescent Mental Health, a journal aimed at child mental health practitioners and researchers published by the Association of Child and Adolescent Mental Health, the Chair of the Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Surveillance Service, and a founder member and director of the CAMHS Outcome Research Consortium.


I am currently Professor of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at UEMS. I completed my core training in psychiatry on the Royal London Hospital Training rotation and my specialist training in child and adolescent psychiatry at the Bethlem and Maudsley Hospitals. I completed my PhD at the Institute of Psychiatry and moved to Exeter in 2007
