Atif Rahman
Atif Rahman is professor of child psychiatry at the University of Liverpool and chairs the Academic child mental health unit at Alder Hey Children’s Hospital, Liverpool, United Kingdom. He is a Visiting Professor at Rawalpindi Medical University and an Honorary Patron and Advisor to the Human Development Research Foundation, Pakistan. His research has focussed on the epidemiology of maternal mental health, the impact of maternal depression on child health and development, and community-based psychosocial interventions in low-income settings including settings affected by humanitarian crises. His is an expert in developing and evaluating culturally appropriate interventions that can be delivered by non-specialists, teachers and parents under supervision of specialists to children with mental health problems. He has a particular interest in implementation strategies, including task shifting and technology, for scale-up of mental health interventions in low and middle-income countries. He developed and evaluated the Thinking Healthy Programme for perinatal depression which has now been adopted by the World Health Organization for global dissemination.

 

Najia Atif
Najia is currently working as an Honorary Research Fellow with Lancashire Care, NHS Foundation Trust, UK and as a Senior Research Fellow at the Human Development Research Foundation, Pakistan. She is a co-investigator for ROSHNI 2 trial funded by National Institute of Health Research, UK and Thinking Healthy Programme-Early trial funded by National Institution of Health, USA. She specialises in developing and implementing culturally appropriate psychological interventions for perinatal depression in South Asian women. She has over 20 years of clinical experience of counselling women, of all ages, and has a deep understanding of their psychosocial stressors. Her area of interest is perinatal mental health and her contributions to the field have focused on women in low and middle income countries and/or women of South Asian origin living in the UK. She has several publications (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/myncbi/collections/mybibliography/?groupby=citation_type&reload=addfrompubmed&sortby=date). Her early work was on understanding the psychosocial correlates of postnatal depression in rural Pakistan but her key contribution has been in the area of applied health research. She has conducted systematic reviews on interventions for perinatal depression, highlighting the gaps in policy and practice from a public health perspective. She has contributed to the development of strategies, such as delivery of interventions through peers, family members and through the use of technology to overcome the barrier of lack of specialized health professionals in low- and middle-income countries. She has also contributed to exploring how global mental health strategies can be applied to the context of ethnic minorities and deprived communities living in high-income countries.

Najia likes to winding down to Bollywood films and TV series. She also needs her daily dose of fresh air so she likes going for walks by the river Mersey but her true passion in life is food.
