Dr Kylee Trevillion
Kylee is a mixed-methods research fellow in the Section of Women's Mental Health at the IoPPN, King’s College London. She has a PhD in psychiatry from the IoPPN and a BSc in Psychology and Criminology from the University of Surrey. Her primary research interests are on the practice and policy responses to violence against women and perinatal mental disorders.
Kylee is currently programme manager on a National Institute for Health Research funded grant examining the effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of perinatal psychiatry services.
Kylee has two active research grants. She co-leads a research evaluation of a new domestic abuse and infant parenting programme for mothers and fathers which aims to end domestic abuse, overcome trauma and improve outcomes for infants from pregnancy to age two. She also co-leads a Department of Health funded project to increase the capacity of mental health trusts to effectively respond to domestic and sexual violence.
Her previous work includes interviewing abused and trafficked people about their healthcare needs and health service use, conducting systematic reviews to investigate the relationship between domestic violence and mental disorders, and piloting an intervention of domestic violence advocacy within community mental health services. Kylee is second supervisor to an ESRC PhD student and was recently awarded a British Council Travel grant to attend an international workshop on Violence Against Women and Children in Diverse Contexts and to build partnerships between institutions.
