University of East London (UEL) Applied Psychology Professor Rachel Tribe has become a trustee for mental health charity The Centre for Applied Research and Evaluation International Foundation (Careif).
Careif is an international charity based in London which works to enhance and protect mental health. It seeks to share knowledge to improve people’s wellbeing. Careif has contributed to a range of research programmes, including the roots of radicalisation and the psychological effects of combat on veterans, engaging with many of the key contemporary issues in the field of wellbeing and mental health.
Professor Tribe said of her new trustee role: "I have been lucky enough to work with the trustees and volunteers at Careif for several years and I am delighted and honoured to be joining the trustees of such an important charity. Careif is undertaking ground breaking work within mental health.”
Professor Kam Bhui CBE, Careif Co-Founder, said: "I am delighted that Professor Tribe is joining the Careif’s board of trustees. She brings a wealth of experience in psychology, including a long standing legacy of research and practice to improve mental health of culturally diverse populations and migrants. She also brings a new energy towards using progressive positive approaches towards better mental health for all.’
Careif focuses on work that its trustees can have the greatest impact on: establishing better access to education and qualifications in transcultural psychiatry; sharing knowledge on wellbeing through a series of high-impact events; and fostering strategic links, nationally and internationally, with like-minded organisations, especially those working with young people.
