Jennifer Lai

Researcher

My role is to synthesise and undertake research to inform the mental health, addiction and disability workforces. This means I work with various projects across Te Pou and help ensure our work is informed by research evidence, as well as lived experience and clinical perspectives. My main areas of work include least restrictive practice (reducing seclusion and restraint) and undertaking research using data from the NZ Health Survey and Programme for the Integration of Mental Health Data (PRIMHD).
