Dr Clemence Due is a Senior Lecturer in the School of Psychology at The University of Adelaide. Her research spans a range of areas related to health and wellbeing for people with refugee and asylum seeking backgrounds, with a particular interest in mental health. Together with Associate Professor Anna Ziersch at Flinders University, her key research relates to understandings of trauma and access to primary healthcare, the impact of visa insecurity on health, social determinants of health for people with refugee and asylum seeker backgrounds (such as housing and employment), maternity health, and oral health. She has also published in areas of identity, wellbeing and belonging for children with refugee experience, as well as best practice mental health care, and practitioner competencies.
Clemence will be joining the session “Building Strengths: Exploring practical responses to mental health needs for people who have faced forced migration” on Wednesday 20 February from 10.45am – 12.15pm.
