Mental Health and You


Research: Cath Pickles, founder of Restitute and research collaborator

Season 2, Ep. 16

On this week's show, which comes from NSFT Research, we hear from Cath Pickles, founder of Restitute who shares her experiences of her daughter's disclosure of sexual abuse. Cath has learnt so much through supporting her daughter and she explains how she has gone on to help carers of survivors of sexual and violent abuse by setting up Restitute.

Using her lived experience Cath is now working with NSFT on one of our projects ASPIRE representing the voice of carers and parents of children who have experienced ACES (Adverse Childhood Experiences) and giving advice on how the intervention can be more effectively delivered.

Cath is a big supporter of research and Restitute is part of our NSFT Researching Together Network which encourages charities, schools and community groups across Norfolk and Suffolk to join our group to hear about research opportunities, suggest research to us and to share knowledge.
