Ms Emily Currell
Emily joined the National Addiction Centre in January 2018. She is working on a randomised controlled trial investigating the impact of assertive outreach treatment (AOT) on alcohol use, for patients frequently admitted to inpatient care for alcohol related conditions.
Emily received her MSc in Clinical Mental Health Sciences from University College London (UCL), where, using a ‘big data’ approach, she completed her dissertation in the area of Cognitive Neuropsychiatry. Exploring the neuropsychiatric and brain-lesion theories underpinning the Capgras delusion, a delusional misidentification syndrome (DMS), the research confirmed novel insights into the delusion. Emily has previously acted as a research clinician at UCL, within the Division of Psychiatry, on projects examining clinical- and cost-effectiveness of interventions for substance misuse in psychosis, and as an assistant psychologist in early intervention for psychosis and bipolar disorder.
