Thesis Title: A cross-cultural, mixed methods study of school climate and adolescent mental health

Abstract: Understanding which elements of the school climate promote and which elements undermine mental health is crucial for the design and implementation of effective and feasible school-based interventions. However, most research on school climate and mental health been done in high-income countries. There has been limited cross-cultural work in LMICs despite the diversity of adolescents’ experiences of mental health and school in these settings. The PhD aims to address this gap by exploring how school climate is conceptualised and related to adolescent mental health in Nepal, in partnership with Transcultural Psychosocial Organization (TPO) Nepal.
