Professor Collishaw’s research looks at human development over the course of an entire life in order to study common mental health problems including depression and anxiety. He gathers ongoing data from population groups to study the development of mental health problems across childhood, adolescence and into adulthood.

He is also interested in ways of promoting mental health resilience in high risk children. His research examines population-level change in young people’s mental health, testing explanations for increases in youth anxiety and depression.
