Ulla Räisänen

Senior Researcher

I am a senior qualitative researcher in the Health Experiences Research Group. My research focuses particularly on the health and illness experiences of young people.

My background is in discourse analysis and health communication. My research experience include projects in young people and (mental) health, depression, health and identity, media and health, discourse analysis and applied linguistics, both in Finland and the UK.

AT HERG I have lead projects on young people’s experiences of epilepsy and depression. I am currently the PI in a Comic Relief funded project exploring the experiences of young people with eating disorders. I have also been developing youth involvement with HERG and the DIPEx charity.
