Personal profile


Tim Campbell is a PhD candidate with Monash University's School of Rural Health, based in Gippsland, Victoria, Australia. Tim's research investigates how Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) can best respond when a young person attending for mental health care has a parent who also experiences mental illness, with a focus on the perspectives of people who have lived experience in these circumstances. This research is embedded within a larger project of Monash Rural Health working toward better understanding mental health within the context of family, and the development of family-oriented interventions aimed at supporting both parents and children to recover from mental illness.
Alongside his PhD project, Tim is a research officer on the Psychological Impacts Stream of the Hazelwood Health Study. This longitudinal study, commissioned by the Victorian state government, investigates health outcomes for children and adults in the local community subsequent to the mine fire that occurred at Hazelwood, in the Latrobe Valley region of Victoria, Australia, in 2014.
Tim graduated with a first-class honours degree in psychological science in 2017, and was the recipient of the inaugural Angus McLachlan Award at Federation University Australia for his research thesis and an Australian Psychological Society Prize recognising his academic achievements. Tim's professional profile also includes experience working in the welfare sector providing care to children and young people placed into protective services.
