Kathryn Ecclestone
visiting professor of education, University of Sheffield

Kathryn is Visiting Professor of Education at Sheffield.

Over the past 15 years, her books, articles and public speaking have challenged the consensus that there is a crisis of ‘emotional well-being’ and ‘mental health’ and that building education around ‘positive mental health’ is educationally and socially progressive.  She has published widely and spoken to many audiences on this topic, both here and in other countries.

Kathryn is currently a co-investigator on a research project on student mental health, funded by the Economic and Social and Medical Research Councils.
