Professor Edge’s research focuses on tackling inequalities in mental health access, experience, and outcomes experienced by racialised, minoritised, and other socially-excluded populations. Reflecting her enduring commitment to integrating research, policy, and practice; Dawn actively engages with patients, communities, and practitioners to co-produce culturally-informed research and interventions to improve mental health and wellbeing. Her doctoral and post-doctoral research focused on depression among Black women during pregnancy and early motherhood.

Currently, her research team is co-creating and evaluating Culturally-adapted Family Intervention (CaFI) with Sub-Saharan African and Caribbean descended families in the UK affected by schizophrenia and related psychoses.  (For further information on CaFi - click here)
