Biographical details

Dr Nicola Hancock’s extensive clinical background is as a mental health occupational therapist. She has worked as director for community services and across community and hospital-based contexts in Australia and England. As a senior lecturer, she strives in her teaching and research to enhance mental health service delivery and the genuine participation and inclusion of people living with mental illness. She is the Post Graduate Coordinator for the Faculty’s Mental Health and Disability research theme and Mental Health Stream Leader for the University’s Centre for Disability Research and Policy. Nicola received her PhD in 2011 from the University of Sydney for her thesis titledMeasuring mental health recovery: Collaborating with consumers.

Research interests

Nicola’s research focuses on making a positive difference it the daily lives and recovery journeys of people living with mental illness. Nicola developed a self-report recovery assessment (RAS-DS) and this instrument is widely used across hospital, community and research settings both within Australia and internationally across 20+ countries. It has been translated into 12 languages to-date (www.ras-ds.net.au).

Nicola’s second focus of research is the examination of practice models and initiatives that purport to enhance mental health consumer participation and inclusion. The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), Recovery College and International Clubhouse Model are three innovative programs or initiatives that purport to have participation and inclusion at their core. Nicola is researching across these programs.

Her focus on participation and inclusion extends to Nicola's research approach. She typically works in collaborative partnerships with consumer or lived-experience researchers.

Nicola has received $1.5M in research funding across an array of research projects, more than half of which she has led. To date she has 40 peer-review publications.
