I am among the leading researchers in public mental health promotion both nationally and internationally. With a practice background as a midwife, I have throughout my years at the university been focused on bridging the gap between research, policy and practice. I have thus built up valuable experience in initiating, developing, implementing, evaluating and leading large interdisciplinary and cross-sectoral research projects with a focus on mental health.
My research is primarily focused on mental health, wellbeing and health promotion. I am the initiator of the ABCs of Mental Health, a large interdisciplinary and cross-sectoral partnership. A partnership where we as researchers have joined forces with a large number of municipalities and large organizations to promote mental health and well-being in practice, on a research-based foundation.
