Ola was the Principal Investigator on The TELL Study, a rapid response project that aimed to explore 16- to 19-year-olds’ experiences of the first UK lockdown, and a lead author on a paper that drew together mental health researchers and experts by experience to reflect on the UK mental health research response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
