Biography

Anne Williams is conducting  research that focuses on factors that support people experiencing severe mental illnesses to participate in meaningful occupations, including employment, education and actively managing their health. Anne's current research explores the experiences of consumers experiencing mental illnesses and mental health workers who together accessed a recovery-oriented website using a tablet computer. The website, Self-Management And Recovery Technology (SMART) was developed at Swinburne University under the leadership of Associate Professor Neil Thomas. SMART contains peer videos, self-management tools and a forum for connecting with peers. The qualitative arm of the research will build knowledge about how online resources and mobile technology can be used collaboratively to support people experiencing mental illnesses with their recovery and self-management.

Anne's affiliations include: the Centre for Mental Health, Swinburne University of Technology and the Living with a Disability Research Centre, La Trobe University. Areas of strength include: use of online resources and mobile technology in mental health practice.
