Personal profile

Biography

Dr Mairead Cardamone-Breen is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow and psychologist with research interests in parenting, youth mental health, and online interventions. She has over 5 years’ experience in the development and evaluation of online parenting interventions for the prevention of youth mental health problems, with a focus on depression and anxiety. Her current research focusses on the Partners in Parenting (PiP) program – an international-first, transdiagnostic, online parenting program for the prevention of adolescent depression and anxiety disorders. Since its development in 2014, the PiP program has been evaluated in two large randomised controlled trials (RCTs) in Australia, and is currently undergoing a large-scale open access implementation trial. The program has also been adapted for use in the United Kingdom where it will undergo a large RCT examining effectiveness as a targeted prevention program for parents of at-risk adolescents.
