Professor Stephani Hatch has joined the MQ Mental Health Science Council, to work alongside global experts from a range of disciplines to advise MQ on research decisions and investments.
Together with three other newly appointed experts joining the MQ Science Council (Karoline Kuchenbaecker, Daisy Singla and Henriette Raventós), Professor Stephani Hatch will be sharing her expertise to help ensure MQ’s research remains at the forefront of mental health science.
The MQ Science council serves as the advisors and decision-makers on MQ’s research. This committee is made up of global experts, from different disciplines, who volunteer their time to advice MQ on their research decisions and investments, and is vital to ensure MQ's research is not only of the highest calibre, but is also independently decided upon.
I am honoured to have this important opportunity to support the inclusion of social science and mental health inequities in MQ’s strategic priorities and projects. Funders have a crucial role in achieving sustainable, structural change to benefit health and social equity.– Stephani Hatch, Professor of Sociology and Epidemiology and IoPPN Vice Dean for Culture, Diversity & Inclusion
